Lakeland 200


The Lakeland 200 is a self-supported mountain bike time-trail route traversing 200km of the Lake District National Park. The route starts in Stavely, and is ridden in a clockwise direction. The route offers approximately 6,400 m of ascent and some quality hike-a-bike on all the Lakeland Classics.

There is no entry fee, no support, and no prizes. It is a self-timed Individual Time Trial (ITT) that can be challenged at any time. All that is provided is the inspiration, the gpx file and a list of completion times.
