This is a great opportunity for the people of Lancaster and Morecambe to show the rest of the country what we can do and turn our district into the Cycling Capital of the North West.
This website is here to help you do just that. Whether you’ve never ridden a bike before in your life or you’re a seasoned pro, whether you’re thinking about beating the traffic and cycling to work or you want to find somewhere safe to take the kids at the weekend, you can find out all you need to know right here.
So come on, what are you waiting for? Let’s celebrate cycling!!
We are committed to developing safe, attractive routes for cyclists and pedestrians within the district for a variety of uses from commuting to shopping to leisure. Walking and cycling are low cost, healthy and sustainable modes of travel available to most people. We recognise the important role that these modes have to play in helping to create liveable towns and cities, in reducing social exclusion and promoting health improvement.
The Lancaster and District Birdwatching society covers an area of north Lancashire, south Cumbria, and North Yorkshire, organising indoor meetings and field trips, collecting records of birds seen, and organising surveys with the BTO and others.
