DAY SEVEN - Manchester to Lancaster

We are truly in the north now.  A relatively easy day after our night out in Manchester, 108km with 410m of ascent.  We head north-west through Preston and finishing in Lancaster.

If you fancy a break from cycling we are going past the British Commercial Vehicle Museum.

The route can be downloaded from here.
