Getting on your bike is quick, healthy and low cost.

Cycling is therefore a great way to get around the local area, or if you are a little fitter, to travel further afield. To the right are a range of useful links, including information on cycling in the Eden Valley, a useful online journey planning tool, details of cycling clubs and venues and organised cycle rides. Story Homes has designed each home to provide covered cycle storage and visitor cycle parking is also available.
