Birds and Bikes at Leighton Moss

What better way to travel to experience the sights and sounds of your local nature reserve at Leighton Moss than by bike.

For those who fancy being at one with nature all the way, Lancaster City Council’s Cycling Demonstration Town Team are taking riders on a leisurely ride to the RSPB reserve along Lancaster Canal and quiet rural roads.

The 13 mile ride kicks off from the Millennium Bridge, Lancaster at 11am on Sunday 26 July.

Once you arrive at Leighton Moss which boasts the largest remaining reed bed in the north west of England, you can join a short guided walk and enjoy the wildlife.

If you don’t fancy riding back you can catch the train at Silverdale station - only two minutes walk from the reserve. Train times can be found at www.northernrail.org.

If you intend to visit the reserve’s award winning tearooms before you return why not pick up this year‘s Events and Rides brochure which includes a 10% discount voucher for all refreshments. Free copies are available from customer service centres at Lancaster and Morecambe Town Halls.

For more information about the reserve visit www.rspb.org.uk.
