January 2022

Wednesday 5th January 22

This was the first ride of 2022, and Angela led a local ride at 10am from Jamerson Bridge.

There were 6 of us on this cold but bright 20 mile ride from Market Rasen to the Beehive cafe in Rand. We were Gordon, Sylvia, Gary, Chris, myself and Tom, who wore shorts!!! Ax

Friday 7th January 

Wilf, Paul, Angela, Gary and Gordon met at Middle Rasen at 10am and rode over to be joined by Shirley in Faldingworth. We crossed to Snarford and then went on to Rand for a break at Buzz Stop Cafe before returning home.

The weather was better than expected. Yes it was cool but the wind was not so fierce and the sun came out for most of the journey back. Depending on the start point … 23 – 25 miles cycled.

Wednesday 12th Jan

This was led by Angela and attended by 6 riders …. Angela, Sylvia, Gordon, Gary and Tom from J-Bridge. Riding from Mk Rsn to Linwood, Lissington an Wickenby where we were joined by Shirley. We stopped at Thornes in Rand and returned via Snelland to Wickenby then Lissingley Xing and back to our various starts.

Friday 14th January

Six members met at Covenham Reservoir at 10am on a fairly bright but frosty morning. It was an interesting start with one member losing their way to the R.V. and another with vehicular problems which were largely resolved while we waited the errant rider.

Despite a late start thanks to Chris, our lead, we did make most enjoyable 25 mile ride on a brilliant day. We went on the back roads to South Cockeringto then turned toward the coast and the Three Bridges junction. There we rode back toward the distant wolds to Great Carlton and turned for Mimis Community Cafe at Manby.

After a welcome break we were off again thro Grimolby to S. Cockerington and our start point. Riders were, Chris, Shirley, Gary, Wilf, Angela and Gordon …. its a ride we would all enjoy doing again. Thanks Chris.

Wednesday 19th January

Angela, Gary, Chris, Sylvia and Gordon met at Jameson Bridge. It was a milder morning than earlier in the week … no frost or wind. We cycled south through Legsby and split for part of the ride, either going to East Torrington before West or the more direct route to West T . We met up again at Holton cum Beckering and continued on to Rand and took a break at Thornes.

Return was via Fulnetby and either crossing the airfield from there or taking the longer ride through Snelland before meeting up at Wickenby. Our ride home took us over the Lissingley Xing on and continued as per NCR1 .

Friday 21st January

Following short break in the Leisure Centre Cafe (now open from 9am)….. Gordon led Gary, Angela and Wilf on a ride from Brigg to Hibaldstow. After passing through the town centre, we rode beside the frozen Ancholme on a well metalled minor road to Cadney, before crossing the river on an assortment of tracks. We tested the “Weak Bridge” with a photo shoot and were then back into normal traffic cycling through Hibaldstow to the airfield Sky Dive Centre.

After a comfort break and refreshments we watched the Sky Dive club members assembling on the tarmac and later jumping from their light aircraft at between 10 and 15,000 feet  into a clear  blue sky. A real treat for us and a relief for them after such a long spell of covid restrictions.

We took the usual ride back through Scawby and then by road to the power station before using a mix of paths to the A18 and our start point.
