Cycling in Neighbouring Areas
Lancashire is a great county to cycle in. Explore our outstanding scenery from the rugged Bowland Fells and Pennine Hills to the flat coastal plain. Ride along our traffic free routes, seaside promenades and canal towpaths.
Networks of cycle routes are being developed in our urban areas, making easier to cycle to work, school, college and the shops. Our new 20 mph speed limits are making it safer in residential areas.
