Explore the Cartmel Peninsula

From Ulverston you can carry on towards the little village of Greenodd before crossing the Leven Estuary and on through Roudsea Woods in preparation for the climb up aptly named Bigland Hill. Catch your breath at the top before coasting downhill towards foody capital Cartmel (of sticky-toffee-pudding fame), and its pubs and restaurants, and through to Flookburgh where the famous Morecambe Bay shrimps are available, in season – look out for signs at fishermen’s homes.

Moving back towards the coastline, pass through the genteel Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands before heading back inland along the quiet old road adjacent to the A590 towards Witherslack and Levens villages and the historic house and stunning topiary gardens of Levens Hall.

EXPLORE MORECAMBE BAY ON AN ELECTRIC BIKE

Why Electric Bikes?


Electric bikes offer more users an opportunity to explore Morecambe Bay regardless of age or level of fitness. The big benefits of electric bikes come from the electric motor. The extra power makes the problem of hills and headwinds a thing of the past, as well as letting you carry full panniers and luggage on your bike.

On longer journeys, an electric bike means you don’t tire nearly as easily so you’re able to explore more of Morecambe Bay and the Bay Cycle Way. An Electric Bike Network on route NCN 700 will open up the route and the wider Bay area to a wider range of users and also present a potential business opportunity for local cafes, cycle hire, accommodation and attraction providers etc. in the area.

Please take a look around this site, get inspiration and information and then come and visit Morecambe Bay!
