Route in More Detail

The route breaks down into some distinct landscape character areas and we aim to add more details soon. Suffice to say, and as the accounts and photos from early W2W cyclist show, the scenery is superb, with plenty of fascinating heritage woven in with abbeys, castles, museums and market towns: 

Furness Abbey - Barrow


Barrow and Lake District Peninsulas

South Cumbria's Low Fells and the Lune Gorge
