We take the bikes down to the small car park at Broughton, then do the Guild Wheel in a clockwise direction. It’s about 22 miles in total with a couple of cafes enroute. It is easier doing it clockwise as there is a steep hill...More

We have cycled around the wheel several times and never tire of it as it is guaranteed safe cycling. As close as you get to cycling in Europe.

The guild wheel is an exciting adventure for everyone, you can ride past rivers nature reserves and lots more. We took our lunch with us as it can take a long time to go around the full route.

Used to walk my dog along the stretch of the Guild Wheel through Avenham and Miller Parks on a more or less daily basis. I have ceased doing this due to the behaviour of some cyclists who show no respect for the safety of others....More

If you're looking for a solid cycling track with good surfaces, little pedestrians and no busy road crossings - this track is not for you. Otherwise, this track is great for less-serious bikers. Very varied, great sites, and pretty challenging sometimes too. Brilliant for the...More
