Cycling by the Sea in Lancashire
Enjoy cycling but don't like hills? Welcome to the Fylde and the Fylde Coast where you will discover miles of flat cycle routes suitable for the whole family to enjoy.
The Fylde coast now offers cycling on the promenades of Lytham, Blackpool, Cleveleys and Fleetwood.
Blackpool-Fleetwood (9 miles),
Plenty of places to stop on the way, including the Jubille Gardens in Cleveleys (4 mls) making this an ideal route for adults & children. The promenade is part of National Cycle Route 62 which, when fully open, will run round the coast from Preston to Lancaster. Fleetwood can offer many seafront attractions including a swimming pool, boating lake, crazy golf and a beautiful sandy beach or take the half hourly ferry across to Knott End and the country lanes of Over Wyre and visit the market town of Garstang.
Blackpool South Shore (1 1/2 miles)
Cycle south between Starrgate & South pier past the Pleasure Beach
Blackpool Stanley Park
Cycle from Blackpool to Stanley Park where you can find Blackpool Zoo, a boating lake & crazy golf or take a well earned rest in the art deco cafe.
Wyre Estuary Cycle Route
A new route from Skippool Creek to Fleetwood along the estuary is being developed, but currently you can cycle from Skippool to Stanah Country Park (1 1/2 mls) and is a fantastic area for bird watching.
Lytham Promenade (2 1/2mls)
Good for children, cycle past Lytham windmill to Fairhaven Lake with kids playground & lakeside cafe.
The Fylde area stretching from the Ribble Valley to the Wyre Estuary & Morecambe Bay provides a network of country lanes, the flat landscape making for easy cycling for all abilities. Country pubs and village cafes, noteably The Priory cafe in Scorton recently voted the best cyclist cafe in the country, provide refreshments enroute.
