Cycling around Southport

There are several types around Southport, one of them the Malvern cycle route initially following the coast north then returning through the town on allocated cycle lanes or quiet side roads. All well sign posted routes making a good day out covering up to 10 miles.

The Trans Pennine Trail starts/finishes from Southport.

Chesterfield Crooked Spire

An interesting visit is to the church with a crooked site. The site was added 700 years ago and still moving with some interesting stories that go with it. Costs £4 each and def worth it – you need a head for heights to go outside at the base of the Tower – which is optional.

Tees Railway Trail

A 7 or 8 mile walking / cycling trail in County Durham near Barnard Castle. Not the best trail we have cycled as there are many gates with steep slopes on their approach and exit – a bit of an obstacle course for cyclists.
But with good views and the opportunity to visit several close by villages to divert into en route to explore or to visit the local pub.

Cycle Ride Beeston Canal and the River Trent loop

A really interesting cycled ride seeing parts of Nottingham never seen before. An easy flat ride following the canal through the city where it joins the River Trent at West Bridgeford. Then along the embankment under Clifton Bridge back to Beeston.
Great ride.
