The South Lakes is preparing to take full advantage of the return of the Tour of Britain next month.
A couple of cycling-related arts project are underway in Ulverston; while family rides are planned at Kendal Rugby Club and Brockhole.
Stage Six of the race weaves its way through the South Lakes on the 7th of September - with the likes of Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome competing.
Cllr Deborah Earl, Cumbria County Council Cabinet member for Local Communities, said: “I am so excited to welcome the Tour of Britain back to Cumbria on 6th and 7th September.
"It’s a fantastic community event that brings people together, and I’m delighted there are so many examples of towns and villages getting ready for the race in all sorts of ways – from painting bikes to making bunting.
"I’d urge everyone to get behind the event and show the world what a fantastic place Cumbria is to live, work and play!”
