Hi All,

BigNige and myself will be out on Saturday 27th June to ride some of the south Lincolnshire roads and decide the route for the Taste of Lincolnshire rideout.

All are welcome to join us, but please be advised this will be a 'dis-organised' day. We have no route and may well end up going in circles! However if you wish to tag along it would be great to see faces old and new. Here are the details:

Starting point: 9am Filling Station on Lincoln Road, Horncastle.
See Google map here.

Lunch stop: around lunchtime Shocked, The Plough, Holbeach St. Johns, Holbeach, Spalding, PE12 8RE
See Google map here.

Post up a reply or call me if you're intending joining us so we don't leave anyone behind. I don't know what time we'll be at the pub, but I expect around 12:30. Call on the day if you want a more definite time. My number is O79O3 4hundred468.

Look forward to meeting up with some of you. I hope the weather holds - it's fantastic here at the moment. Think I'll pop out for a evening spin! Very Happy

Cheers,
Chris

I'm sure I've been on one of these before Wink
I'll be much closer to you than normal this weekend (in Scarborough for a weekend break) but won't have the bike with me.
Hope you find all the best roads......looking forward to it all in Sept.

Had a great day - thanks Nigel for sorting it and the food etc. Really enjoyed it, and no mishaps (except for the salt incident but i think we'll find that in a different thread!). Looks like TOL will be another good trip again.

[img][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][/img]
start the day with a planning meeting and a bacon butty!

not quite sure what the posh drink was all about ...

[img][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][/img] .... in fact seeing it in that cup i'm sure ellie probably sees a lot of stuff that colour!

..... and i beat the rain home too!

Hi All,

Back home safe and sound.

Thanks to all who joined us; it was a nice little group and I think we all had a good day. A big thanks to Nige for organising us all - I really didn't have a thing to do. Great planning.

The route Nige planned for us had a bit of everything and introduced me to some cracking new roads that will be incorporated into the ToL. 👅 In fact the ToL will be, more or less, a re-run of today. 227 miles on my clock today. That might be a bit ambitious for the final route, but there are options for shortening this.

The weather held for us and I'm surprisingly tired right now :sleep:

Highlights of the day:
The early off-road section complete with mud and gravel
Mavis Enderby!
Getting to New York - impossible but true
The horse drawn hearse at our first stop of the day (nice touch Nige Shocked)
The hospitality at the lunch stop
Tel's impression of a local (ask him!)
The roads - shockingly good in places (though I'm biased)
Belton tea stop - minus the salt next time slap'ed but with the cream cake Very Happy
Suzie heading home like a rocket - you have the nitrous on or was Ezzy wanting her bed?
Boothby Graffoe!
The long run home

Look forward to doing it all again in September.

Cheers,
Chris
