Copeland, like the rest of Cumbria, is a great place to cycle. Whether you are leaving the car behind and commuting to work, doing the full 'coast to coast' experience or simply want a day out in the countryside with friends and family. You will find quiet country lanes, cycle paths and endless refreshment oppportunities to make your cycling more enjoyable.The Lake District National Park Authority and Cumbria Tourist Board websites are a great place to start.
On Monday 16 September we will be welcoming the riders of the Tour of Britain to Copeland as they pass through on Stage 2 of the tournament. We have created a web page with an interactive map so you can follow the action.
