If you prefer cycling on the road, experience the challenging Chorley Grand Prix course, which is just over 23 miles of scenic Chorley countryside. Start at Astley park gates on Park Road in Chorley town centre and head off towards Harpers Lane and Eaves Lane, heading in the direction of Rivington. Follow the roads to Limbrick and head down Horrobin Lane over Rivington Reservoir before heading up Sheephouse Lane to the steepest part of the route where the King of the Mountain section takes place.
Then over Belmont towards Abbey Village, Withnell, Brinscall, Higher Wheelton, Wheelton and on to Moss Lane in the direction of Whittle-le-Woods. Here, you’ll come on to the A6 Preston Road where you’ll need to take a right into Buckshaw Village, heading in the direction of Euxton. Finally, follow the road on to Euxton Lane and Westway before taking the first exit at the roundabout on to Southport Road and head back into Chorley town centre.
