Cycling in Preston

Hi. I hope to visit Preston in the Autumn for several days and would like to explore it on 2 wheels under my own power.

Could anyone advise of bike rental, and any organised/led bike rides/city tours.

Thanks in advance.

As Preston is not excatly a tourist destination I doubt if you will find any city tours. However the countryside around Preston is mostly very pleasant, particularly to the NE and there will probably be some cycling groups who organise rides of varying lengths, particularly on a Sunday.

Try looking on ctc.org.uk and searching for their local groups.

There are many cycle routes throughout Preston and the surrounding area, and a great ride of around 15 miles up to Lancaster, which has been designated a cycling city. Lancashire county council arrange tours of some of their buildings, parks and places of interest, which you could link to with your bike? Some websites to get you started.
