Activity Level: 1-3

Every Backroads trip is designed to appeal to a wide variety of interests and fitness levels. Several routes and a range of levels are offered each day so you can choose how much or how little activity you want to do. Learn more about how we determine activity levels.

Route notes

On this trip, we'll be using titanium mountain bikes that are just right for the non-technical dirt road riding as well as the paved riding. (Approximately 45% dirt and 55% paved). The biking terrain on this trip includes a mix of paved and unpaved roads with some stretches of rugged terrain and sandy sections, making the routes feel more challenging than the mileage may suggest.

Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Terrain, Traffic & Hiking Trail Support

The Lake District's beautiful yet rugged topography limits the number of available roads. Although we've carefully crafted this itinerary to feature a mix of the region's most scenic paved and dirt road-biking routes, at times we encounter small trafficked areas, as well as a few sections of dirt roads with loose rocks and sand. Of course, you're always welcome to jump in the shuttle to avoid the busier or rougher sections of the route. Our hikes through Patagonia's captivating terrain follow rocky and sometimes uneven paths, many of which are remote and do not intersect with roads. Vehicles will get us to and from the trailheads, but the nature of these trails is such that we won't see our vehicles along the route. Ample trail support in the form of water, snacks and encouragement is provided by your Backroads leaders and local guides.

Leaders & Local Guides

Trips with a small number of guests may be supported by one Backroads Trip Leader and a team of knowledgeable local guides. Rest assured that there will always be at least two people hiking on the trail with you.
