Day 2, Sat 21 Sep 2019

Challenge Day!

You will wake early for a pre-challenge breakfast before beginning the adventure with the tough bike section up the hill and into Grizedale Forest. The forest circuit in the forest is one of the Lake District's most famous mountain biking locations. You can guarantee you will be well tested on the forest tracks before descending back to Coniston.

Next up is the trek to the summit of the Old Man of Coniston, a classic Lake District mountain. This is an 11km trek to the summit at 803m.

The final section sees you challenge yourself to a circular kayak loop on Coniston Water before you finish this incredible challenge and celebrate your achievements.

Important information

Please note:

The itinerary, or the order in which you complete the activities may vary depending upon the weather and other aspects beyond our control.

If you are returning home by train please make sure you have booked an open ticket, as timings will depend very much on the group’s speed and ability. You may also want to consider booking yourself another night at the hostel to avoid travelling/driving home when tired.
