Angela leads the ride at 10am from the bridge in Jameson Bridge Street (Market Rasen). The ride is steady and can be modified on the day to take account of cyclist who may need a slower pace or are back in the saddle after a break.

The route will use local smaller “quieter” roads, go through local villages and pass chosen beauty spots. There will be a comfort break stop and an option to be refreshed.

Friday 19th May

Today was generally forecast as rain, rain, and more rain. However despite a few regulars dropping for a number of personal reasons, Wilf and Gordon rode off on what turned out to be a comfortable ride south.

Despite fair weather, but with the nasty forecast hanging in the air, we decided not to stray as far as Nettleham. We did a reasonable circuit of 19 miles calling a Rand and then checking out the airfield cafe (looked closed!) at Wickenby.

Sorry some of those put off by the weather apps were not with us!

Monday 22 May

This was a first trial for people who need a short or moderate starter ride . We were Helen, Shirley Tom and Gordon this morning. Our ride was under 10 miles and took in some lovely views, from the countryside at the foot of the wolds to the river and woodlands surrounding the town.

As planned, we had a comfort break and refreshment at the golf club, before returning to Market Rasen.

Wednesday 24th May

Gordon led Sylvia, John, Shirley, Mike, Wilf and Gary on this ride from Market Rasen through Legsby and on to East Torrington where we turned west for Rand and were re-joined by Gary at the Buzz Stop Cafe.

The group took the usual route back via Snelland and Wickenby toward the Buslingthorpe Bridge, but Mike, who had the furthest to go, left us early to make his way home.
