Blackpool is an exciting place for cyclists. With traffic free promenade cycling and links to inland attractions like Stanley Park it is a superb way of getting around.
For a great day out, cycle along the promenade visiting sea front attractions as you go. It is a great ride for all the family. At over 12 miles long, the promenade is the UKs longest seafront cycle route, and is part of National Cycle Route 62.
Alternatively, you can follow the National Cycle Network signs from outside the Town Hall, through Stanley Park to the picturesque village of Staining, and the Lancashire countryside.
Ride in the Lights.
Each year at the start of the Illumination season at the end of August the main sea front road is closed to traffic to allow cyclists to ride the lights. A safe way for all the family to enjoy the world famous Blackpool Illuminations, the greatest free road light show on earth by bicycle.
At over 12 miles long, the promenade offers a wide range of interesting things to see, with shops and stalls galore should you need any refreshments along the way. Take in the ever changing sea view, take a walk along all 3 outstanding piers or simply enjoy the sights and sounds along the way.
A visit to Stanley Park is ideal for a sedate stroll with it's stunning gardens, historical buildings, and abundant wildlife - it is a true oasis of calm.
The town centre features many pedestrianised areas, making a shopping trip a traffic-free experience.
