Sensational Sights and Stories: SMC’s Spectacular Travel Tales – Honister Pass


It’s that Time again! Where we look at the best locations in the UK to ride to and cover some phenomenal travel tales!


Today it is Honister Pass in the Lake District! If you are familiar with the Lake District you are likely well acquainted with its incredible beauty and valleys, you would easily mistake for a painting. Located directly in the middle of the Lake District it is exactly 163 miles from SMC Bikes, so you have plenty of time to stop off at services if needs be along the way.


Honister Pass holds nothing back when it comes to beauty and equally the challenge it presents you with its winding tarmac snaking through the valleys and rocky outcrops connecting the towns Keswick and Buttermere. Only 2 miles long it rises to 1167ft at its summit whereby you are rewarded with unreal views of Honister Crag and for those interested in history the Honister Slate Mine can be found at the summit of the journey.


Now, it must be noted that this tour is not for the faint of heart, with its hairpin bends and narrow lanes it should be perfect for those that seek adventure and a challenge.
If you decide to do this tour, please make sure you take lots of pictures and tag us in it on Facebook and Instagram!


Safe Riding!

Sheffield Motorcycle Centre Ltd  is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Sheffield Motorcycle Centre Ltd  to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
