Excellent off road cycle route, which can be ridden in small sections for families with smaller children, or as a complete ride. Parking available on streets at various points and also at Brockholes wildlife park.

Rode the guild wheel last week. It was my 1st time. It was great. Saw places I never knew existed in Preston. Don't have to be a experienced cyclist to do the ride. Well sign posted. Will definitely do it again soon

Best parking from your direction would probably be Brokeholes centre next to the Tickled Trout junction off the M6. You may have to pay for parking. It’s 22 miles Enjoy

There are no eating drinking or toilet facilities on the wheel itself. People may welcome the items you mentioned but it should be publicized by notices .
