Cycling at Stanwick Lakes

Bring your own bike or hire one from AJ Cycles

Cycling at Stanwick Lakes

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.

Please note that cycling is only permitted on the designated cycle paths. Walkers have priority and cyclists must take care when approaching pedestrians.

Please be sure to adhere to the correct social distancing guidelines during the COVID-19 outbreak.
