Information on bringing your bike with you across Windemere

Bikes are welcome on many of our services and our boats are often a convenient way to access the quieter trails and roads around the Windermere lake-shore.

This page has important information to consider if you are bringing your bike with you.

'Steamer' services

Cyclists and their bikes are welcome on services operated by our 'steamers' on the Red Cruise (Bowness < > Ambleside) & Yellow Cruise (Bowness < > Lakeside). Operates all year.

  • Bikes are welcome if there is space available
  • Bikes cost £2 extra on the price of your ticket per journey (i.e. Bowness to Ambleside)
  • Foot passengers take priority on this service, and our busiest times are from 1pm - 4pm.
  • Sorry, no space for bikes on our smaller boats called 'launches'.
