Free, guided bike rides in the Lake District.  They follow scenic planned routes from the main tourist areas and are led by British Cycling ride leaders.  They’re all on quiet roads or traffic free, family friendly routes.  We had lots of people from Barrow and the wider Furness area attend the rides last year.

Get on Track Coastal Railway Walks

Join a group of people enjoying trips out to walks, accessible from Barrow Station by catching the 10.10 am train out of Barrow on the first Thursday of each month.

A full programme of monthly 2 to 3 hour walks will run throughout the year on the first Thursday of each month.  Each walk has been mapped out, using every station between Grange and Millom.  The walks are about 5 miles, taking up to 3 hours and can be over rough ground, occasionally very wet underfoot.  Most walks end in the vicinity of an agreeable place to eat and drink.  New walkers will be made very welcome.  Walks start at 10.30am.

2 October Green Road – Brockwood Hall – Green Road
6 November  Dalton – Abbey – Roose
4 December  Kirkby – Broughton - Foxfield

The first named is the station where the walk begins, the last named where it ends.  The walk start time coincides with the arrival of the 10.10 train from Barrow.  Trains set off from Barrow in both directions within a minute (or two) of 1010am.
