Cycling - General Information
Burnley Borough Council has worked closely with partners, Lancashire County Council, SUSTRANS (sustainable transport charity), British Waterways and others to develop a network of cycle routes around Burnley & Padiham.
A Cycling Strategy was developed and adopted by the Council. It identified a network of core cycling routes around the Borough. A map of those routes has been produced and is updated regularly.
Burnley Borough Council
The Council is responsible for the maintenance for off road cycle routes through Parks and public land. It also raises funds from external sources and works in partnership with other organisations to improve access to the countryside for pedestrians and cyclists.
Defects with on off-road routes and suggestions for improvements should be directed to the Council's Streetscene department.
