    This is a great day out if not a tiring one!. plnty of choice of bikes at various prices to hire, it gets very busy in the summer i would recommend getting there early to avoid dissapointment. Kids have a fantastic time and it has the benefit of being a healthy family day out. I would advise taking packed lunches as food round the water area i expensive particulaly if you have a family. The have a selection of cycles with attachments for carrying small children so all the family can enjoy.

    Hired 2 bikes from the cycle centre at Edith Weston. (There are several rental locations round the lake.) Route is not always well marked and there are cattle grids and gates to look out for which slow you down a bit so allow plenty of time for 17 mile ride. However it is an excellent way to spend an afternoon, the bikes were well-maintained and comfortable. Good choice of bikes, we hired a hybrid and a mountain bike. No locks provided but available for purchase in shop. Hats also available for hire.
    Shop is worthy of visit by any cyclist for any type of kit.
    Car park charges in addition to cycle hire

Steve has been riding ever since he bought his first MTB in 1991 a Halfords Carrera Krakatoa. At the time he was twelve years old and as a very keen cyclist his dad showed him the trails. Steve rode a lot through his teens mainly with his dad and friends and started racing in 1995. He was never really into XC racing although he loved XC trail riding so Steve started racing downhill. The downhill racing from then was very much a watered down version of what it is today. most people were still riding hardtails for downhill in 1995. Steve started working for Halfords part time in 1996 and that stopped him riding so much. In 2000 Steve joined Rutland Cycling and has never looked back.
