A Lake District Grand Tour
Pedalling through Lakeland:
The Challenge, The History, The Wildlife, The Scones
Mike Carden visits all the lakes of Lakeland, pokes into its most distant corners, and cycles over every mountain pass (well, he attempts to). Along the way he tells the story of Lakeland. He sees where poets wrote and climbers climbed, he tells of ‘oond trailin’ and fell-racing, and he hunts for golden eagles and elusive ring ouzels.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the book.” Conserving Lakeland
“A very well written book with a chatty humorous style.” Keswick Reminder
“Easy style of writing, built-in gentle humour and eye for detail.” Arrivée Magazine – the long-distance cyclists’ magazine
