We cycled 9 miles round the lake and through the woods, it was uphill quite a bit, but the downhill was soooo worth it! We loved it. It rained (and was freezing) but It felt like we were getting good exercise and fresh air. It’s only about an hour away. The bikes were £44 for 3 hours, which sounds a lot, but when you think of it as £11 each, it’s pretty good. We would definitely do it again!”
