LakesMTB began life on Instagram. Designer and rider,
Andy Smith, who has years of riding experience in the Lake District wanted to show the world the local trails, the stunning scenery and the challenging local weather conditions. He posted his first shot just over a year ago and the feed now has nearly 22,000 genuine followers.
It soon became apparent that there was a need for more information about riding in the area so Andy teamed up with fellow riders and creatives – Joe Lethbridge, Ben Gerrish
and Dan Jesse to make that happen.
The team then commissioned a team of influential local contributors to regularly add news, stories and stunning photographic images.

Our contributors regularly provide us with cool content relevant to riding in the Lake District. Here we will showcase this epic place we’re lucky enough to call home. We love to tell a tale, inspire and get people buzzing about riding some of the best trails in the world.
