It’s not just their love of cycling at the Tebay Services Hotel but the fact they have seen an increased number of cyclists staying over at the hotel that has propelled this hotel to be #theplacetobe for cyclists.
The location means 2 wheeled novices or hardened road and mountain bikers can enjoy from the doorstep cycling but the hotel also makes a great overnight break on a long journey to or from Scotland.
But being the summer holidays then it is the time for family cycling and the GoSkyRide programme of guided rides are perfect. No need to check a suitable route, what bike to take, is it child friendly, the list of the rides on the GoSkyRide site give age, suitability and terrain details along with route and estimated time. On August 2nd starting from Rheged just a short drive up the motorway from Tebay Services Hotel is the 14 miler Penrith Eat, Drink & Ride. Leave the road and join the quiet lanes with a half way stop at the Greystoke Cycle Café for refreshments before returning back to Rheged.
Rheged has a lots to see and do during the school holidays so this really could be a full day out as the ride should take around 1 hour 45 cycle time. Up to 5 places can be booked online by clicking here http://www.goskyride.com/Search/Details?eventid=61831.
