Our 25 mile route caters for cyclists who aren’t ready for the big climbs and longer distances but still enjoy a challenge – with beautiful surroundings thrown in as well!
Starting at The Fell you’ll pedal over the River Ribble to the villages of West Bradford and Waddington, along Rabbit Lane and past ancient Browsholme Hall to Cow Ark. Cross the Hodder and head for the picturesque village of Chipping where we will have a food- and toilet-stop for those who need either (or both!)
The route then heads back through Chaigley, over the rivers Hodder and Ribble again and into Clitheroe over ancient Edisford Bridge before finishing after 25 miles at The Fell, where you can enjoy a bacon butty (or similar) a massage if you like (courtesy of Whalley Physiotherapy) and enjoy browsing through all the cycle stuff on display at our event HQ.
Please Note! The route has been amended slightly so that the final section through Clitheroe now uses Pimlico Road and the Pimlico Link Road and NOT Well Terrace and Chatburn Road. The current downloadable routes (Strava, .tcx and .gpx) have all been amended but the change is not shown on the picture map below. All signage will show the correct route.
