Completed half the guild wheel with my husband on our day off. Beautiful day, and the wheel was not too busy. Clearly marked paths and very challenging in places. A super idea to have a cycle route for all to enjoy. We also use it...More

This is one of Lancashire's little gems and a really great cycle route. Whilst well established and much improved, it remains a really great cycle "tool". It is peppered with lots of interest, including nature reserves, pubs (some just off the route), cafes and parks....More

Being over 50 and not exactly at the peak of fitness, my husband and I have enjoyed 10 mile sections previously, always starting at Brockholes. But on Sunday we decided to dust down our bikes after 4 months and see how far we could get...More

Well sign-posted, generally flat, mainly offroad but at times that does mean on pavements alongside busy roads and industrial/housing estates, varied scenery, some of it not particulary pleasant, lots of people in the way around the park area. Quite pleasant along river and docks. Nature...More

Lovely scenery and a great workout if you're walking or on a bike, but please be careful of the minority of cyclists who think it's acceptable to speed past pedestrians without any warning - especially so later on in the day as some will fly...More

From Preston station you need to go to Winkley Square from the back of the local Fishergate Centre and head up to Avenham Park. Once there, head down towards the river and you’re on the Guild Wheel 😃
