Welcome to is written by cyclists, read by cyclists and ridden by cylists. 

We’re continually building up our database of mtb and road routes across the Lakes, Dales, Yorkshire Moors, Forest of Bowland and North Pennines. So,wherever you're based, you’ll never be short of suggested rides.

Route-sharing’s a two-way thing, right? We want to hear your recommendations. Is there a hidden gem in the Lakes that we don’t know about? Perhaps you want to give a shout about your local ride.

pedalnorth covers a range of abilities, from gentle family trails with stabilisers and tag-alongs all the way up to wild moorland gruelfests where the suck of bog on your tyres tugs at your very soul. Once you’ve picked your route, we’ll help you plan around it –  the weather, good cafes, pubs and restaurants to eat at and accommodation. We'll also guide you towards the best bike shops to part with your hard-earned.

So stop staring at a computer screen ... and get out there.
