What it's about!

We've noticed when riding Sportive events, that there tends to be a difference between the way Men and Women ride them. Even the Women who are going fast appear more likely to have a chat and enjoy the whole experience; rather than just ride for a fast time. We've also talked to a lot of Women who would like to try a Sportive; but feel a little intimidated.

Sportive Ladies

One of Sportive Lakes ™ Headlines is 'Events where the people you meet are at least as important as the time you achieve'. With this in mind, we thought that we should run a 'Women Only' Event; more sociable, slightly less serious and really encouraging for first timers! Ladies of the Lake will be on the Sunday of the Ulverston Lantern Festival weekend, so come up on the Saturday and enjoy the spectacle!

Routes

There are two routes for this event, both of which follow the shores of Coniston Water: one of England's finest lakes. They are both lovely routes, with the shorter route designed to present an achievable challenge to first timers.

Lakes 46km, 712 meters of climbing

A circuit of Coniston Water; some climbing but nothing too harsh. A geat mix of scenery and not too much traffic. The route will be signposted with tricky junctions marshalled. A 'One Cake' route! £30.

Lakes and Hills, 57km with 1075 meters of climbing

Not too much further; but with a different proposition. Includes the classic Hawkshead Hill and the climb from Hawkshead to Grizedale Forest. A proper ride; but not at all brutal.
Clearly signposted with tricky junctions marshalled. Definately a 'Two Cake' route! £35.

Discounts on both routes for entries before May 16!

Come and Stay!

We're based at the historic Swarthmoor Hall, with B&B, Self Catering and Camping on site - make a weekend of it and join in with the Lantern festival!
