Done the wheel a couple of times supporting a charity. It is hard work but satisfying when you get to the end. The ride is interesting, you ride through different areas, country side housing main roads

Easy to follow route around Preston with several places to stop off for a coffee or snack. You can do the whole of it or just a part.

Best parking from your direction would probably be Brokeholes centre next to the Tickled Trout junction off the M6. You may have to pay for parking. It’s 22 miles Enjoy
