How to join the West Wolds U3A cycling group
Come to the next meeting and make yourself known to one of the Greeters. He or she will explain what the U3A is about and introduce you to a member of the cycling group.

The cycling group is there for you to enjoy a leisurely ride locally and, on occasions, journey further for a day out.

All riders are expected to ride with safety in mind,  wear a helmet and an appropriate “high vis” jacket, top garment or a reflective sash, using lights when appropriate.

Cycle Group rides are currently coordinated by Gordon Jennings. We welcome suggestions for future rides. Please call  01673 844222 / 07948881121 or click gordon@elgo.net  to go on the regular mailing list.

Friday Rides  are planned to be of 3 and 4 hours duration, with a comfort break at mid point. Rides are a mixture of distance v terrain, depending on weather and other factors. They normally start at 10am and are led by an identified member of the cycling group.

Wednesday Rides are local to Market Rasen meeting at 10am on the Jamerson Bridge in Market Rasen. They are easier (10 mph) local rides, lasting from 1 to 3 hours, with a comfort break and refreshments.

“Over the Hill” are local bike rides which offer a more energetic route for those who don’t mind a few hills. Rides are arranged ad-hoc without clashing with the regular Friday rides. To be put on the mailing list for these rides, click to tell Gary (Group Lead).

February and March  … (weather issues) so please watch for last minute emails .


Please be aware, while we have no riders specifically asking for short rides on Wednesday, the rides are between 16 and 20 miles. As new riders join we will adjust this ride pattern.


Wednesday 20th February ……. Angela is off on the 9 mile walk with a few regular riders. That means Gordon will be leading this one from Jamerson Bridge at 10am.

Friday 22nd February **** … Middle Rasen to Rand, (Thorne Beehives)

This is a ride of 20 miles starting at 10am from Middle Rasen PO. Riding south on Mill Lane to cross Buslingthorpe Bridge we turn left for Busingthorpe and Faldingworth. Using the east footway/cycle track we pass through Friesthorpe and on to Wickenby. The ride then goes into Snelland and takes the southern back road to Fulnetby on the B1399 Clay Bridge Road. Its then a fairly short run uphill to Rand and Thorne’s beehive showroom and refreshment area.

Return on the B1399 to Holton-cum-Beckering and pass through the village onto the minor road (right) passing Holton Grange, then turn north to White House Corner and on to Linwood. Those returning direct to Mkt Rsn continue on the B1202  and those going back to Middle Rasen and Faldingworth cross back returning via Lissingley Lane / Buslingthorpe Bridge.

Please let Gordon know you plan to ride
