Blow off those cobwebs!

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 Hanson Cement you’ll pedal to Chatburn, then cross the River Ribble and visit the villages of West Bradford and Waddington, along Twitter Lane to Bashall Barn, Bashall Eaves 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 Hanson Cement again, where you can enjoy a bacon butty (or similar) and a massage if you like (courtesy of Whalley Physiotherapy) at our event HQ.

 Start times: 0900 – 0959; sign on 0845 – 0945.

Entry Fee:  On-line:  £18.00       On the day: £24.00
