Links - Our favourite mtb sites, and a couple of others!
- Bike Treks Ambleside
In the Ambleside area and need something for your bike - then this is the place to come. Probably the best known bike shop in the Lakes; the sort of place where browsing always reveals a piece of hardware, kit or threads that you'd love to own, with a workshop which is second to none. Highly recommended!
