The Guild Wheel is a cycle and walking route around the city of Preston. It is great for racing cyclists or family outings alike. It takes in the best of the scenic parts of a post industrial city including Avenham Park, the former docklands and the River Ribble. Pick a start point and do as much or as little as... More

I took a friend's dog for a walk around around only a fraction of the Guild Wheel and what an enjoyable walk it was! It was hard to believe that not far from where I were, there was a bustling, busy and noisy city and yet, all was quiet and peaceful. The Wheel is a fantastic way of of enjoying... More

Have walked the Guild Wheel. Excellent for the main part but lacklustre coming from the area near the car showrooms. For the main part, out in the countryside enjoying the outdoors and views. One or two climbs but certainly manageable

Done this ride quite a few times, it's always a favourite with the family, biggest fault to me personally is lack of refreshments after you leave docks nothing at all until you get to Bluebell Way. But even for this fault is still a brilliant ride.

easy, nice ride. Signs ok till Savick! i went past Savick way turn off due to minimal signage and ended up at the Locks that raise Savick brook to the Lancaster canal. Trouble started there. The info board at the side of the canal points you down the canal, I ended up back in the middle of Preston.

Something I wanted to do for a very long time, then one day ended up doing it unprepared. Must admit, it's one great route and comes in as one of my proudest achievements (I did the full Guild Wheel + a few more miles during a fast of no water or food on a scorching hot day!) Would recommend to... More

Had heard that the guild wheel was a nice cycle around the Preston area so have it a try, nice road and not too many tricky hills, all in all a pleasant afternoon out

Good for a blast on your own and equally rewarding as a family ride. A great concept and nice to get away from the traffic.
