Cycling or WalkingStanwick Lakes has a network of over 7 miles of footpaths/cycle paths (wheelchair accessible). In addition to circular routes around the lakes there is a four mile linear route running from Irthlingborough towards Thrapston, providing safe off-road walking and cycling.

If you haven't had your bike out much over the winter it would be well worth  getting it serviced, or if you need a new one, go and see Darren and Avril at Cyclelife in Wellingborough they have a fantastic range of bikes, accessories in stock, aswell as doing on site repairs.
