Bikepacking the Lakes

‘Bikepacking’ has always been associated with Scotland where it allows you to access remote hills. So what exactly does it have to offer when you’re in the Lakes? Trail’s Matt Swaine and Jeremy Ashcroft dug out a pair of mountain bikes and a set of trailers to take a tour of the Lake District, searching out remote hills and tracking down neglected scrambles. You can read the whole feature in the August 2008 issue of Trail…in the meantime, here’s a taste of what they got up to as they used the bikes to give them access to a quieter, people-free side of Scafell. 

This is a great player to watch individual videos through.
