From Lowther Castle, there is a lovely network of cycle paths (mostly traffic free) which explore the Lowther Estates with links over Askham fell to Pooley Bridge and Ullswater. We now have another 3 locations from which you can hire your bikes from - Hillcroft Park & The Quiet Site both in Pooley Bridge and Arragons Cycles in Penrith. Whether you're into wildlife, history, the stunning landscape or enjoy culinary delights, we have a variety of tours on offer & will be happy to design a trip exclusive to you. Come and explore the Lake District with us.
Our store in Penrith is open Monday - Saturday and is home to a selection of road bikes. During peak times - March to September, you will find Ben or Kyle at Lowther Castle, ready to welcome opportunist hires as well as those pre-booked. We also have a number of ebikes available to hire from Pooley Bridge, either Hillcroft Caravan Park or The Quiet Site.

To ensure you have a safe visit to our hire centres we have put in place the following measures:
So we can hire to you safely, we have opened our hire centres with only 1 member of staff at a time.
Hand sanitiser is available to anyone who approaches
If there is a queue when you arrive, please remain 2 metres apart and wait your turn. As we are an open air hire centre, there is plenty of space for this.
We have a new protective screen at the booking station to protect everybody.
We always clean helmets and bikes after every use, but we have upped our cleaning procedure, all helmets and contact areas of the bikes are sanitised with 99.9% Isopropyl Alcohol on top of our usual cleaning procedures.
If you arrive without a booking, we are regularly sanitising the payment terminal and asking customers to sanitise their hands before use.
We have also set up a self registration system so you have no need to sign paperwork. You can do this on your own mobile via a QR Code available at the hire centre. We also have a tablet that you can use and will be sanitised before and after use.
As part of our hire procedure, we will not be handing bikes to customers directly, we will set seat heights and then place on a rack for you to collect.
If you have your own helmet, you are more than welcome to bring that along for your own use.
