Darwen Tower Ride – 31/08/2013

Saturday 31st August it is planned to ride from Abbey Village up to Darwen Tower, with a shorter route available to the younger riders.

There will therefore not be a ride from the school on this date.

Meet Location

Dole Lane, Abbey Village, PR6 8DP


From Preston follow the M65 to J3, at Junction 3 take the A675 Bolton Road South for approx 1.5miles To Abbey Village, go through Abbey Village and just as you leave you will see the Hare and Hounds Pub on your left, Turn Right immediately opposite the pub onto dole lane and park on the side of the road.


There is a café en-route (map below), there is also the Hare and Hounds Pub Once we have finished.


I would definitely suggest using mountain bikes or bikes with mountain bike tyres, you might get away with using a hybrid on the smaller kids route but I wouldn’t advise it as it is still fairly rough !!

Start Time

Meet time 10.30am – Older Kids Ride – 3hrs,
Smaller Kids Ride 1-2hrs


We could do with an idea on what coaches will be turning up, if you could email Simon and let him know it would be helpful.

If you have any further queries or need any more information please email Simon Morris
