At The Red Townhouse, you are in the perfect location for riding a bike over rolling terrain on quiet rural roads and bridleway tracks, an exhilarating way to enjoy Eden's epic scenery. The Eden Valley and Orton Fells, spread as they are between the tougher terrain of the Lake District and North Pennines, are especially good for circular rides from places like Penrith.
The Coast to Coast cycle route passes through Penrith. Plenty of ‘end to enders’ those cycling Land’s End to John O’Groats also pass through Penrith. There is an excellent local cycle shop in the town for sales and service - as well as a large Go Outdoors superstore.
