Round off a year of discovery with our latest events. And there's great news for the Bay Cycle Way too...

Hello 2016: Farewell 2015 

We’ve big plans for 2016 – electric bikes for hire along Bay Cycle Way, a LiDAR survey of Warton to uncover its Iron Age Hill Fort and a volunteer programme to protect wintering birds from disturbance at key roosts.  
 
Thanks to all our volunteers, funders and supporters, 2015 has given us much to celebrate – the Bay Cycle Way launched and nearly 1,500 maps sold, the successful LOVEmyBEACH campaign supporting the best results yet for our bathing waters, and a new team of heritage volunteers recording the chimney site at Jenny Brown’s Point.  


Antony Peregrine, writing in the Telegraph, described the landscape of the Bay as “huge, outlandish, not just stirring but nourishing…” Here’s to another great, nourishing year for Morecambe Bay - with our warmest wishes to you all for the festive season.

Bay Cycle Way wins prestigious award


The Bay Cycle Way has been honoured with the title of 'Best Visitor Experience 2015' after picking up an award at the Lancashire Tourism Awards 2015, in Blackpool last month. 

The Bay Cycle Way is a breathtaking journey around the Bay from Walney Island to Glasson Dock. It launched in June 2015 and has already seen thousands of people get out on their bikes to explore the stunning coastline and heritage of the Bay. 

Have you tried it out yet? Why not ask for a map for Christmas and plan a trip for the new year?
