Overview

Cycling guide to the Lancashire Cycleway - two loops, each 130 miles (225km), which meet at Whalley in the Ribble Valley, northern England. Lancashire is a great place to cycle, and cycling is a great way to see Lancashire. One of its great delights is its sheer variety. There's easy riding on the flat expanses of the west of the county and the gentle undulations of Arnside and Silverdale or the Ribble Valley. More stirring challenges are found in West Pennine Moors and the epic crossing of the Bowland Fells. But even on the wildest stretches, you're never too far from a welcoming pub and somewhere to sleep. The Cycleway comprises two distinct loops, each around 130 miles (225km) in length, which meet at Whalley in the Ribble valley. Seasoned cycle tourists can comfortably tackle either loop in a weekend, or do the whole thing inside a week. However, access by rail at numerous points means that less experienced cyclists can do it in shorter sections. This book, the first comprehensive guide to the Lancashire Cycleway, gives guidance on how to manage this, as well as a full description of the route, notes on where to find meals and accommodation, and masses of information about places of interest along the way. There is also some helpful advice for those new to cycling or cycle touring.

Meet the Author

Jon Sparks has been passionate about photography and the outdoors since childhood. A six-week trek in the Karakoram Mountains, Pakistan, in 1990 was a turning-point; the learning curve was steep, but the pictures were rewarding. Some of them are in this book. His first exhibition soon followed, and four years later he became a full-time photographer.

Jon specialises in landscape and outdoor subjects, and his picture library includes images from New Zealand, Canada, Morocco, Australia, Pakistan, Jordan and more than 20 European nations. He also supplies images to the global libraries Corbis and Alamy. He publishes Lake District greetings cards and postcards, and so far has his name on nearly thirty books.

Jon is a member of the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild. He lives in Garstang, Lancashire, close to the Forest of Bowlandwhich can be a distraction from writing.
