Explore Eden by Motorbike
In partnership with MotorBike Rider magazine we have produced a series of film tours to showcase how fantastic Eden is for motorcyclists.
Take a look at the special Discover and Explore Eden by Motorbike online magazine supplement to find out what makes Eden great for touring by motorbike.
Eden is easily accessible via the M6, A66, A686 and A592 and the mix of market towns, The North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Ullswater are all waiting to be explored. Eden also offers fantastic local food and events to enjoy.
Our series of film tours take the biker around picturesque Ullswater and Haweswater, over Orton Scar to Hartside - a route named as one of the World's Top Ten Most Scenic drives by the AA - and through the towns of Appleby, Brough and Kirkby Stephen.
The film tours give a great flavour of Eden if you are exploring by other means of transport!
