A newly launched ‘Bike Boat’ - providing a special ferry service for cyclists across England’s longest lake - will go daily for the school summer holidays.

Windermere Lake Cruises has specially adapted a traditional wooden vessel, Sunflower, to carry up to 12 bikes and passengers across the lake and back. Running approximately every 20 minutes, it will act as a ferry service for cyclists travelling between Brockhole, the Lake District Visitor Centre, on the eastern side of the lake and Wray, on Windermere’s tranquil western shore.
