  • Staveley and the Garburn Pass Eastern Lake District

    Staveley and the Garburn Pass mountain bike route is in the Eastern Lake District in North West England. It is graded as technically hard/ difficult and is 19.3 miles long. It is a great ride for those who like technical Lake District riding. It climbs the Garburn Pass from the Troutbeck side, which is mainly rideable but with a few difficult sections that only the best will clean. Descending the Garburn Pass into Kentmere is for those who like steep, loose, boulder strewn, technical descents. Although the Garburn Pass is the first and best descent the rest will not disappoint with a good mixture of pick your way down boulders and fast blasts.
