If being in the great outdoors is your thing the Ribble Valley has plenty to offer for cyclists of all abilities from gentle cycle routes that take you down quiet country lanes to the challenging Forest of Bowland which offers fantastic mountain biking for the more experienced rider. There is walking aplenty including the Ribble Way, a 70 mile (113km) waymarked walk that follows the course of the River Ribble as it winds its way through the area from its source at Ribblehead to the estuary at Preston.

And for those who prefer life at a slower pace, pack up a picnic full of local produce and relax on the banks of the River Ribble with friends and family. You could even have a little wander down part of the Ribble Way should the fancy take you.
