Event Description

I have been saying for some time about doing this ride so finally I've sorted a date out. This route is suitable to do on any bike but I will be doing it on my MTB the same as most of us.  I don't intend going hell for leather so it should be ok for most members.  We will be stopping at a cafe en route but I will be taking some butties / snacks and a drink as well.

I propose we park up next to the London rd bridge A6 on the way into Preston in the carpark in front of the old Shaws Arms pub at 9.30am approximately 3 hours ish.


The Preston Guild Wheel is a 21 mile "Greenway" that encircles the city of Preston, linking the city to the countryside. It is both a walking and cycling route.

Built by Lancashire County Council with the support of Preston City Council and the significant input of volunteers from the Guild Wheel Users Group, the Guild Wheel has been created as a lasting legacy for the 2012 Preston Guild. The route will provide a valuable and on-going commemoration of the Guild, benefiting Preston residents and visitors alike for years to come.

The Guild Wheel route makes the most of the different landscapes that surround the city of Preston, creating a rich and varied environment for everyone to enjoy. To the south of the city, it takes you alongside the gently meandering River Ribble, past ancient woodland, historic city centre parks, the largest nineteenth century dock in Europe and Brockholes Nature Reserve by the M6. Other highlights of the route include the Ribble Link Canal and the woodland areas at Longsands.
