Stanwick Lakes has a network of over 7 miles of cycle paths. In addition to circular routes around the lakes there is a four mile linear route running from Irthlingborough towards Thrapston, along the former railway line, providing safe off-road cycling – and a means of ‘green’ travel for local visitors.
Cycle hire is available on site at Stanwick Lakes in association with A J Cycles of Rushden. As well as adult and child bikes, it is possible to hire a tandem, buggies, trailers and child seats. A disability scooter and trike are also available.
Please note that cycling is only permitted on the designated cycle paths. Walkers have priority and cyclists must take care when approaching pedestrians.
