This is the official map for the Bay Cycle Way route, an 81 mile (130km) coastal cycle route around Morecambe Bay in the north west of England, and winner of the Visitor Experience Award - Lancashire Tourism Awards 2015. This relatively flat route hugs the spectacular coastline of Morecambe Bay along quiet roads, greenways, canal towpaths and promenades, offering breath taking scenery from Walney Island near Barrow right round to Glasson Dock south of Lancaster. The route looks out over the Irish Sea and is ideal for spotting terns, curlew, knot, oystercatcher and even grey seals.
This full colour map based on Ordnance Survey data shows clearly mapped cycle routes on traffic-free paths, quiet lanes and roads, with easy to read contours, route profile, and town inset maps, local Tourist Information Centres, bike shops and cycle hire details.

Customer Reviews 1 item(s)
- Quiet and scenic route
- An excellent route with a variety of surfaces and interesting scenery making the journey pleasurable. Although the route is quite flat between Glasson Dock and Cartmel, mention should be made of the hills either side of Ulverston. Going west to east there is the challenge of Bigland hill, quite a tough 1 mile climb. The hills going through Greenodd are also tiring when attempted towards the end of your journey.
