This is one of Lancashire's little gems and a really great cycle route. Whilst well established and much improved, it remains a really great cycle "tool". It is peppered with lots of interest, including nature reserves, pubs (some just off the route), cafes and parks....More

This is a great circular cycle way. Only very short sections are on the road, but these are fairly traffic free. The rest of the cycle way is on car free paths and old railway sections. Takes about 2-3 hours to complete at a leisurely...More

Lovely scenery and a great workout if you're walking or on a bike, but please be careful of the minority of cyclists who think it's acceptable to speed past pedestrians without any warning - especially so later on in the day as some will fly...More

From Preston station you need to go to Winkley Square from the back of the local Fishergate Centre and head up to Avenham Park. Once there, head down towards the river and you’re on the Guild Wheel 😃

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
