Five treks for cycling enthusiasts have been set out in a new map produced by
Ribble Valley Borough Council in partnership with Lancashire County Council.
The Ribble Valley Cycle Map features three short and two medium treks by road or fell suitable for both novice and experienced riders plus families.
The routes take in numerous Ribble Valley villages, including Downham, Chipping and Hurst Green plus the Upper Dunsop Valley and Gisburn Forest.
The council’s culture and leisure services manager, Colin Winterbottom, said: “With its quiet country lanes, breathtaking scenery and attractive pubs and cafes, Ribble Valley is the ideal destination for cyclists.
“This new map is the perfect starting point for cyclists looking to explore our picturesque borough and stay fit at the same time.”
The new treks are part of the 260-mile Lancashire Cycleway that runs through Ribble Valley and takes in the famous Gisburn Forest Mountain Bike Trail.
