Preston, North West, UK

Preston PedalFest Cycle Sportive is a cycle ride which will take place from Avenham Park, Preston on Sunday 23rd July 2017.

There are two routes available and both start from the beautiful Avenham Park, Preston. The long route initially heads out of the park and over towards Mellor and then Whalley, taking in some of the beautiful Ribble Valley lanes and hills. From Whalley you will head out via Great Mitton & then Whitewell before arriving in Dunsop Bridge to tackle the infamous Trough climb. Having earned a food stop you will head down into Abbeystead for a half way feed.

Following the food stop the homeward leg skirts around the Forest of Bowland, along some quiet country lanes through Oakenclough and Inglewhite before heading through Broughton and Woodplumpton. From here you will meander your way back to Avenham Park via Preston Docks where you can relax and take in all that Avenham Park has to offer.

The short route will follow the same course as the long route until you fork off at Wilpshire via Longridge and over to Inglewhite where it will rejoin the long route back to Preston.

The route is undulating, the roads are quiet and the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. Full refreshments are available at the half way stop (long route only) and Avenham Park will be the host of lots of other activities during the day as well as the Riverside Cafe selling food and drinks once you finish your ride.

The long course is 65 miles and the short course is 37 miles.
