Why not visit Pleasureland during National Bike Week

National Bike WeekWe’ve all heard that phrase “get on your bike”, well 13th June is the start of National Bike Week and what better way to get to Southport Pleasureland for some fun by the seaside!

Did you know that Pleasureland sits at the westernmost point of the Trans Pennine Trail? The trail is a fantastic, long distance cycle route, mostly off-road and which is largely purpose built using canals, riversides, disused railway lines, minor roads and urban cycle paths. More than 60% of the trail is traffic free making it excellent for families to ride safely. It’s also fairly flat – certainly around this area – making for easy cycling even for novices.

If you were to travel the route from the easternmost point of Hornsea across to Southport, you’d be riding a total of 215 miles. However if you wanted to cover the whole of the trail, you’d actually cover 370 miles – meaning a good bike and some padded cycle shorts are pretty essential!

For those not wanting to ride quite so far, there are stations along the way so part of your journey either to or from Southport could be covered by train on the Northern Line.

However you travel here, you are sure of a good welcome. We have bike stands in our car park area, plenty of food and drink outlets and lovely grassed areas for picnics. Oh, and a park full of rides and amusements too!

So why not pack up your panniers and head out west on the Trail to the land of fun at Southport Pleasureland!
