Blackburn with Darwen promotes cycling with routes booklet

Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council have produced a booklet containing six local cycle routes in the aim of promoting cycling in the borough. The emphasis is on the health benefits resulting from regular exercise. The routes are aimed at all abilities from beginners through to advanced riders. The booklet includes some on-road routes and a number of off-road routes including some mountain bike trails. The easiest of the routes is 8Km around Witton Country Park and the Leeds and Liverpool canal. The hardest is a 25Km circular tour of Blackburn.

The booklet is available from local libraries, the visitor centre in Church Street and town halls or via the council's website.
