Hi guys still palnning the trip and posted on Lake District too---I have looked at the brochures on cycling in scotland and wonder can anyone asnwer a couple questions:
1) can we rent good bikes and equipments? I don't want to drag bikesd--we really are only nonserious bikers, no mountain bikes just easy.....
2) the rides I see look pretty hard core--any rides that are eays pleasant non-hills, and preferably not much traffic? We really don't want to be road pizzas, just bike easy around some great scebnery. I would love to do the avvey borders routes to see the abbeys but it looks like it could take us days---I wqonder if there is anyway to enjoy bikes without being a triathlon contestant.
Thanks--also---has anyone ever driven from Lake district to Gloucester (the Vale)? Is it long or how are the roads, etc...??? Thanks all!
