Cycle ride: Lancaster-Sunderland-Heysham-Bolton le Sands-Lancaster

Despite the fine weather, I didn't manage to leave for a bike ride until after 13:30 today, so didn't plan to go far: just to Sunderland (the tiny village near Sunderland Point, at the mouth of the River Lune) to take a few photos supplementing/replacing those from earlier trips.

I needn't itemise the entire route, as it's obvious from a map and I've described it before, but in short I crossed the Lune at Millennium Bridge and followed the north bank of the river to Overton via Snatchem's, then across the saltmarsh to Sunderland.

That didn't take as long as I'd expected, so after returning to Overton I crossed the peninsula to the Morecambe Bay coast at Heysham then followed that north through Morecambe to Bolton le Sands. From there, I crossed back to the Lune at Halton and returned to Lancaster along the cycle route. That's more-or-less the reverse of a ride I completed in February 2005, so I presume the distance was comparable at about 45 km (28 miles).
