22 July 2018

The Preston PedalFest Cycle sportive takes place from the beautiful Avenham Park in Preston. It is part of a larger festival of cycling which takes place within the park, so there's lots of family activities throughout the day. The long route is 65 miles and there's a shorter 36 miles option. Both routes leave Preston and follow the river Ribble towards Whalley, but soon split, with the shorter route heading to Longridge and then returning to Preston. The long route continues to Dunsop Bridge and the Trough of Bowland, which is both stunning and challenging! It's a great day of cycling for all abilities, make sure you join us in Avenham Park for this festival of all things cycling!
