Mr Stretch toured the county visiting three schools in each district with the Pedal Your Health roadshow.
The schools were chosen by the six Local Area Committees for Cumbria County Council who have kindly funded the roadshow along with the Lake District National Park authority.
The roadshow will be accompanied by the Pedal Your Way to Health resource.
