The C2C (Sea to Sea) cycle route passes through Penrith and the town has been designated Cumbria's first Cycling Hub which means that cyclists are made extra welcome and will find excellent facilities including cycle hire, cyclist-friendly accommodation and specially designed routes starting from Penrith. A leaflet is available from Penrith Tourist Information Centre which describes five "Do in a Day" cycle routes from Penrith.
Five circular OS mapped 'do-in-day' rides ranging from 15 to 31 miles. The eastern edge of the Lake District, the Eden, Lowther and Lyvennet Valleys, and Greystoke are all explored from the historic market town in the middle of the Eden Valley.
