Ride Directory

Edited Nick of Pendle Hill Climb

Looking for some inspiration. Below is a directory of popular cycling routes around Lancashire all departing from Croston Sports Club, feel free to use and download.

2022 Summer Weekday routes – For 2022 the club will have 10 set routes (For A and B Groups) for the Tuesday and Thursday rides which are titled CV SUM22 #1 – CV SUM22 #10, each title is followed by either AC if the route goes anti clockwise or C if clockwise. Each Tuesday and Thursday a route will be published via the clubs social media.

We now also have 10 set C Group rides which are slightly shorter so people can be aware of the plan for the evening and it ensures the group arrives back at similar times. Please find them below the A/B groups routes on this page

Please can we ask that where possible you download the routes to your GPS device as the more members that have the routes the easier and safer the navigation is, if you download them all at the start of the season it saves you downloading a seperate one each week.

Winter Routes

As summer has well and truly drawn to a close and the last ‘bib short’ days seem to be behind us until spring 2022 we have decided to refresh the Winter routes for the dark months that lie ahead. This provides a number of benefits (1) Routes are designed specifically with winter safety in mind e.g. better road surfaces, reduced traffic (where possible), turn left where you can. Also reducing the number of routes increases familiarity helping to ensure people know where they are going and know where the inevitable potholes are! 

Many thanks to Tim Bryning for the time he has spent thinking about, designing and re-designing these routes! 

These routes will be used on the Tuesday and Thursday evening rides so please download them to your GPS device if you intend to use them. Given the groups are smaller we do not feel the need to pre-publish the route each week and the members present can pick what ride suits them best on the night. 

These routes are in use from 9th November 2021 until a change is confirmed in Spring 2022. Please note all routes are anti-clockwise.
