    I've cycled the path around the lake on my Hybrid, the path is pretty decent but parts wouldn't suite a road bike. I would say stick to the roads and work your way around, however I'd say get something a little bit more rugged and enjoy the ride right next to the lake!

    Depends how far you want to go, but if you ride up past Kielder right to the top of the valley there're interesting routes whether you go left or right. Lovely quiet roads in the Scottish Borders and nice climbs.
    More problems but still living....
