Cycling enthusiasts will be able to ride with Eccleston’s Tour de France hero Bradley Wiggins at a special event this month.
‘Ride with Brad’ takes place on Sunday, August 19 and has been organised to help celebrate the launch of the Bradley Wiggins Foundation.
The Ribble Valley welcome the Tour de France winner and a host of riders from up and down the country as they attempt one of two challenging rides.
Both routes (160km or 100km) will go on a tour of Lancashire’s most outstanding natural beauty spots, including the Forest of Bowland, where riders pass through picturesque villages and farmland of Ribble Valley.
The 160km route conquers challenging climbs and descents.
Waddington Fell, Trough of Bowland and Longridge Fell form the backdrop to this route.
The shorter 100km route misses out the northern moorland loop around the Trough of Bowland. However, it will still include Barley Fell, Waddington Fell, Longridge Fell and the Nick O’Pendle.
Both of the routes start and finish at Victory Park in Barnoldswick.
