The Bay Cycle Way Launch - June 11 - 14 2015

A few KDCS members joined the final section on Sunday June 14th 2015 that finished at Glasson Dock, some cycled from Silverdale and many cyclists met at The Millennium Bridge in Lancaster.

A stunning long distance route that takes you on a tour of Morecambe Bay, one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the UK.  Taking you from the south west coast of Cumbria to Glasson Dock in Lancashire, this route is a feast for the senses.
