Map Side 1

Ambleside to Elterwater 7km (4.5 miles) each way

This route follows quiet lanes and cycle paths for most of the way, with some long level sections and lovely riverside scenery. Return the same way or option make longer by returning via Loughrigg Terrace.

Map Side 2

The Claife Heights Circuit 15km / 9 miles

A varied and enjoyable ride. The route passes through the old stone built hamlets of Far Sawrey, Near Sawrey, Colthouse and High Wray, and it is easy to make a short detour to Hawkshead.
