A friend and I spent a nice afternoon walking some of the Wheel. We started in the park and walked all the way to the wharf. It was nice to see the cyclists and families who were also enjoying the day.
Plenty of places to park the car, it's well signposted and at 22 miles, its a great ride. We use it regularly, park near the Broughton Traffic lights on a small car park there. I would advise doing the ride in a clockwise direction as it's very steep from Brockholes up the hill if you do it anti-clockwise.
I'm pleased this route exists. The section from Preston dock to Brockholes is definately worth riding. Basically following the bank of the Ribble upstream on paved or gritted paths mostly. Turn around after visiting the cafe at Brockholes. We cycled the other half just to say we did the wheel, but it is mostly cycle paths through a business Park... 更多
This is very good route for a steady stroll, or if like me go flat out on a time trial. Limited cars on this route and mainly cycle tracks. Good country air and plenty of wildlife to see. A very good experience and right on my door step.

If a local, then a whole circuit and/or a specific chunk is within your lucky means: if a visitor, then, whichever part you embark upon,you will be welcomed by scenery and wildlife and local history. Dip in and enjoy in "bite-size" chunks and... 更多

Whether you want to blast round the circuit or take in the scenery, the choice is yours. Plently of stops and resting places along the way but I usually go round none stop to boost my fitness level. Well... 更多
We have done the Guild Wheel ten times now. It's totally addictive and each time we do it we are always left wanting to do it again. My main tip is to go prepared. We have done it in all seasons and under all weather conditions. It can be very exposed in many areas. Make sure you take food and... 更多
