Welcome to Preston's Guild Wheel - a 21 mile circular route.

It is mainly off-road and traffic free, providing a scenic and safe cycling and walking route for all the family to use.

We will pause en route for water and snack stops to keep us going. There will be a longer stop at Starbucks off Bluebell Way at approximately 2/3rds distance before the final homeward leg.

Bring a roadworthy bike, helmet and clothing to suit the Lancashire weather. Mudguards are advised. Basic bike tools and an inner tube to suit your wheel size recommended. Bring snacks and drinks to keep you going.

We never leave anyone behind
