Route Description

Ride Social in Lancaster

Come and join team Potty-Mouth on a glorious 20 mile circular ride to the city of Lancaster. The route is almost entirely off road and largely flat, except for a smooth gravelled climb onto the breathtaking Lune Aqueduct and a steep downhill tarmac section to re-join the estuary on our return. We meet at Glasson Dock, with its famous Port of Lancaster Smokehouse where you can buy smoked meat, fish and other delicacies. From here we follow the old rail track alongside the Lune estuary into the city before passing the spectacular Millennium footbridge and then on surfaced cycle routes through the city until we reach the aqueduct. Here we climb the 61 foot rise onto the Lancaster Canal.

We’ll cycle along the towpath, calling in for a well-deserved libation at the Water Witch canal side pub. Then we follow the canal towards the hamlet of Aldcliffe and retrace our path back towards Glasson, calling for yet another well-deserved libation and possibly a snack at the Café de Lune at Condor Green.

This is a beautiful ride taking in stunning scenery, coastal views to the Lake District and a well maintained canal towpath for good measure.
