This is the first of the BeWell group Guided Rides to mark the start of Bike Week 2021 which is from Sunday 30th May to Saturday 5th June. It is the Famous Sights Of Wigan ride with an alternative descent into the Douglas Valley. Lovely scenic route that is mainly off road or on quiet country lanes. You will pass some of Wigan's famous landmarks which starts with the famous DW Stadium - home to Wigan Rugby League Club and Wigan Athletic Football Club. You then move on to pass Wigan Pier made famous by George Orwell / and George Formby. Next you will go uphill passing one of Britain's largest set of locks - 21 of them in total. You will head into the grounds of Haigh Hall a large Country Park and Hall, left to the residents of Wigan by Lord Crawford for the enjoyment of all. We will stop at the courtyard where there are several options to purchase refreshments.
