Preston is the city at the heart of the national cycle network. The Guild Wheel is a new route round the city to celebrate 2012 Guild.
Part of National Cycle Route 62 to Lytham.
If you live in Cottam, Ingol or north of Blackpool Road use the Lancaster Canal or the Ribble Link Canal to cycle into town. There is a sealed surface on the canal towpath, so you do not have to worry about getting muddy. The towpath is also a great way of getting to the University Sports Centre. It is planned to open a cross city cycle route from Cottam to Fulwood, the hospital and Preston College in the future.
Cycling is part of University life and a great way of getting around town. We are working with Uclan to make the University area safer to cycle in by introducing new cycle crossings and improving cycle parking. You can also cycle to the University sports centre along the canal.
Uclan offer members of the university community free cycle training from beginner to experienced.
There is a cycle race track at the University Sports Centre. The race track is used for local clubs and for wheels for all sessions.
