Cycling Day Tours Around The Forest of Bowland
With multiple tours around Lancaster and the Forest of Bowland, Open Road Open Skies has a cycling day tour for you!
From the historic city of Lancaster across to Bowland Knotts and back down to Bleasdale in the Forest of Bowland, or around Morecambe Bay, by the River Lune and the Lancaster Canal, we have a day tour waiting for you. We run private group day tour routes across the Bowland, Morecambe Bay and the Lune Valley with three different challenge ratings: easy, intermediate and challenging which are detailed below - so we have something for everyone. There are two start times: morning (@9am) and afternoon (@2pm). As with all of our tours, they are planned, organised and run by Open Road Open Skies.
Our routes are normally loops around charming villages, through historic places and of course the beautiful landscape of Bowland and Lancashire. Our tours stay on traffic free sections where possible, or local queit roads where not. We provide all the bikes and equipment needed as well as snacks to keep you going, and transport to and from your accommodation can be arranged. A lot of our day tour routes are planned to begin and end in Lancaster, however as our routes pass through so many towns and villages (including but not limited to, Morecambe, Carnforth, Gressingham, Hornby, Brookhouse, Wray, Galgate, Claughton and Condor Green) that it is most likely we can start our tour outside your hotel or B&B. Just let us know where you want to start from and how much cycling you want to do and we will come back to you with a route to fit your needs.
Lancaster. With direct train routes between London, Manchester, Edinburgh, the Lake District, it's a perfect day out with your friends, and as our loop tours can start directly from the train station it makes it all the more convenient for you.
If you're cycling in Bowland there are going to be one or two hills involved, so a higher level of fitness would be expected. Our leisurely tours around Lancaster, on the canals and the river, are not very challenging but some previous experience of riding a bike over a short but extended period would be expected. As you will be with an OROS guide, any mecahinical problems encountered will be dealt with by them. On all of our tours there will be lots of time to stop and admire the views, take a break or take a picture - if you so wish. We will of course advise you on the challenge of all routes before booking.
