Hike and Bike Bowland: 24 Walks and 11 Cycle Rides Including a Long Distance Circular Walk
In "Hike and Bike Bowland" Jon Sparks will show you around. On his well chosen 24 walks, 7 road bike and 4 mountain bike rides he will take you to places high and low, by river, through woods and onto the tops.

There's even a long distance route, which can be broken up into six linear walks, with good transport links making it straightforward to tackle them individually. The author provides fascinating background information on flora and fauna, history, legend and literature. The book is sumptuously illustrated with the author's photographs and simple but clear full-colour mapping.

Full colour photographs and colourful sketch maps accompany each of the well described walks, with the bonus of making it an attractive souvenir of the area.

Concise route descriptions are complemented by ample background information. This title deals with the Pendle district in East Lancashire. Twenty superb walks use starting points such as Clitheroe, Downham, Sawley and Waddington. Places visited include Stonyhurst, Longridge Fell, Bolton-by-Bowland, Ribchester and the River Hodder. This is launched in unison with a guide to the neighbouring area Around Pendle, which neatly complements this area and also adjoins the previously published guide to Bowland.
