2013 saw the first Tour De Hawkshead take place. It was a great success with 133 riders taking on our routes plus many youngsters taking on their own challenge by taking part in our bike skills and obstacle courses. 2014 sees us back, bigger and better! This years Tour De Hawkshead will take place on Saturday 12th July 2014.

We still have our 3 main rides, plus after listening to our feedback from last year, we have introduced a 4th route.

A challenging ride for those who love big hills and big views. This is not for the faint hearted but you will be rewarded with some spectacular downhill. This ride will take you through the beautiful Lake District up and over some great passes on some of the best roads in Britain.
