Blea Tarn and Red Bank to Grasmere

Grasmere, The Lake District, England


A scenic ride that includes two of the smaller, but still testing climbs in the Lake District. First, the southern approach to Blea Tarn, which was added to the Fred Whitton Challenge as a final extra climb to punish riders in 2018 (length 1.7Km, height gain 98m, maximum gradient 25%). Then, following the spectacular and steep decent down the north side of Blea Tarn and the run through the beautiful Great Langdale comes the climb up Red Bank (length 1.3Km, height gain 109m). Finally, there is the fast downhill finish into the pretty village of Grasmere.
