It is widely known that the Lake District, which has recently gained UNESCO World Heritage status for its spectacular scenery, has some of the best natural mountain bike trails in the world.

With this in mind, Biketreks specialist cycle store, Lakes MTB and Langdale Hotel have joined forces to offer the ultimate team-building escape or corporate retreat – A mountain bike adventure break in the Lakes.

The breaks launch in May, can be tailored for all abilities and provide the ideal escape from the office – a complete and dramatic change of scenery.

They will run regularly throughout the year and include three nights’ luxury accommodation, two days of guided riding with a British Cycling qualified guide, secure bike storage, laundry and drying facilities, qualified mechanic for last minute tune ups in Biketrek’s workshop, breakfast each day, t shirt and water bottle.  Biketreks can even hire a pro photographer to document guests’ guided rides so that they can go home with some killer shots of their experience.


The two days of guided riding kick off at Biketreks’ store in Ambleside, where guests will meet their guide and enjoy a cuppa before heading out for a full day’s riding.  The day can be tailored to guests’ preferences, with everything from family friendly adventures to high summit, rocky, technical singletrack possible.  There will either be a stop for lunch at a great pub, or a chance to tuck in to a packed lunch and the guided rides will conclude at 4.30pm when guests will head back to Biketreks for a debrief before returning to Langdale Hotel.

At Langdale Hotel they can ease aching limbs in the 20m pool, spa pool, sauna and steam room, grab a bite to eat in Stove or Wainwrights Inn, dry wet kit using the hotel drying facilities and get their heads down for a blissful night’s sleep in their stylish room complete with Egyptian cotton bedding and Pure Lakes luxury toiletries.

Mountain bike hire is available for those who don’t want to bring their own bikes and costs £30 per day. E bikes can be hired at £60 per day.

The first Biketreks MTB Adventure Break runs from the 17th of May and costs £545 per person based on two sharing, including three nights’ accommodation in a twin room at Langdale Hotel, full use of the hotel leisure facilities, breakfast each day, two days guided riding with LakesMTB (BC qualified) guide and coach, secure bike storage with CCTV, laundry and drying facilities, Biketreks T-shirt and water bottle, with qualified mechanics on hand for any last minute bike issues…Basically everything but lunch, evening meals, beer and spares.
