Arnside and Silverdale Cycling:
Both places are excellent destinations for keeping fit and enjoy the stunning scenery around Morecambe Bay.
Both places are in an area designated as AONB (Area of Natural Beauty) due to the impressive wildlife and landscape.
The AONB was established in 1972 and extends as far as the Keer Estuary.
Perhaps the best-known feature is Arnside Knott which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
It is known for its wildflowers in the spring and its abundant insect and birdlife, including buzzards that are often seen overhead.
Many unusual plant species thrive in its limestone soils, including wild orchids, and a mix of plants conducive to butterflies.
Arnside and Silverdale are situated on the Morecambe Bay Cycle Way and are easily reached by train.
I caught these cyclists having a well-earned rest on Arnside pier.
Cycling is a great way to enjoy the AONB where you can explore and discover the area and soak up the atmosphere
Furthermore, the lanes around here are safe with fantastic glorious views of the Lakes with beautiful countryside around every corner.
