Longer Bike Rides from Lancaster

The countryside around Lancaster has many quiet lanes, byways and bridleways, offering a wide range of cycling opportunities in gloriously diverse scenery.

This helpful Cycling For All Guide (pdf download), provides at-a-glance information about eight great longer rides ranging from 32 – 55 km (20 – 34 miles). Some are generally flat, while others are decidedly hilly. Some can be tackled on any serviceable bike; a few are best on a mountain bike, though tarmac alternatives are given.

These rides are more suitable for anyone with some cycling experience although they’re certainly not just for hardened athletes. However for absolute novices and younger children, please view our other routes.
