Ullswater Loop

This is a great ride which is not too long, just right for an afternoon or long evening. There are no huge climbs, just a few short sharp testers. Don't be fooled though, after riding this you may know about it! Some sections can get rather wet in the more wintery months, but don't let that put you off! The ace singletrack more than makes up for it.
