Five New Ways to Explore Borough by BikePublished Thursday, 01 May 2014
Five treks for cycling enthusiasts have been set out in a new map produced by Ribble Valley Borough Council in partnership with Lancashire County Council.
The Ribble Valley Cycle Map features three short and two medium treks by road or fell suitable for novice and experienced riders, and families.
The routes take in numerous Ribble Valley villages, including Downham, Chipping, Hurst Green, the Upper Dunsop Valley and Gisburn Forest.
The council’s culture and leisure services manager, Colin Winterbottom, said: “With its quiet country lanes, breathtaking scenery and attractive pubs and cafes, Ribble Valley is the ideal destination for cyclists.
“This new map is the perfect starting point for cyclists looking to explore our picturesque borough and stay fit at the same time.”
The new treks are part of the 260-mile Lancashire Cycleway that runs through Ribble Valley and takes in the famous Gisburn Forest Mountain Bike Trail.
