Lancashire Loop Cycle Challenge

The Lancashire Loop Cycle Challenge has something to suit everyone. Whether you are a novice cyclist and looking for a new challenge, or someone who can easily notch up 50+ miles just for fun, you are perfect for this fundraising event!

This year's Lancashire Loop Cycle Challenge takes place on Sunday 5th October 2014 when we will once again be setting up our registration HQ at Cockerham Village Hall in the heart of Lancashire.
Three circular routes are on offer, taking you on a beautiful journey through the picturesque Ribble Valley, Bowland Fells and Lune Valley.
The 18 mile route is suitable for families, and stays on the mainly flat area of Cockerham Sands. The 50 mile route hits you with a few hills to start off with but, once you're past the 30 mile point, it becomes a lot flatter and each year we have many inexperienced cyclists successfully complete the circuit. The 100 mile challenge is geared towards experienced cyclists as you will climb 5,000ft throughout the course.
All routes are fully signed and on road and you will be supported by a team of back markers, minibuses, a medic and a bike mechanic should you encounter any problems. Refreshments are also available on the route as well as at the registration HQ - so why not arrange for family and friends to come and support you at the finish line as your very own cheering squad?!
To register free places for under 14's please contact the office 0161 798 1600
