Bikes go free on Windermere ferry

Windermere Ferry won't be charging for bicycles between 22 and 30 July

This week sees a Drive Less See More Awareness Week unfolding across places like Windermere, Coniston, Grasmere and Ambleside, to help the public understand more about the multitude of sustainable travel options available.
The week started on Sunday July 22nd and runs until Monday 30th July and offers over 20 activities, special offers and dozens of events. Cumbria County Council is offering free travel on the Windermere Ferry for cyclists all week, and has seen a positive uptake and a really good response from cyclists – despite the rain!  There’s also great deals and discounts to be had all week at local hotels, attractions, cafes and transport providers.
