Cyclists can enjoy free guided fun bike rides through West Lancashire in the coming weeks.  

West Lancashire Borough Council has teamed up with British Cycling (external link) to organise the exciting pedal-powered events around different parts of the borough. Each one has a different theme and will be fun for all the family.  

The History and Heritage bike ride is on Sunday 19 July and starts from Rufford Old Hall. It is expected to last for two-and-a-half hours and will cover 17 miles.  

A nine-mile Waterway and Woodland jaunt starts from Burscough Wharf on Sunday 26 July and is expected to last one hour.  

Rufford Old Hall is the starting point for the Wildlife and Wilderness ride on Sunday 16 August. This is another 17-mile ride and is expected to last two-and-a-half hours.  

All three events start at 10am and will cover their respective distances at a steady pace. They are suitable for adults and children aged eight and over.

The final pedal-powered activity of this series, called Eat, Drink and Ride, has no age restrictions and sets off from Banks Leisure Centre at 10am on Sunday 23 August. The 10-mile ride is expected to last 90 minutes and will cover the distance at a steady pace.
