West Lancashire Cycle Rides

Type:Cycle Route

Lancashire
West Lancashire Cycle Rides
In the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution brought spectacular growth to the towns and cities of eastern Lancashire. The west of the county became the main source of food for these growing urban areas, and West Lancashire remains predominantly rural to this day, with just two main towns, Ormskirk and Skelmersdale, and a scattering of smaller towns and villages.
Most of the district is flat. Large areas have few trees or hedges and the land stretches almost uninterrupted to the horizon. It makes for easy cycling (except when there’s a breeze against you!) There’s variety in the east, where the two ridges of High Moor and Ashurst’s Beacon flank the Douglas valley, and the landscape is more pastoral.
The district is easily reached from surrounding urban centres like Liverpool, Wigan, Chorley and Preston, and good rail links add to the options.
