Weekend to Lincolnshire

John Talbot - 07752 957363
7:00pm at Woodhall Spa

We're planning a weekend to Lincolnshire to explore this interesting county of contrasting hills and flat lands.

Our base will be Woodhall Spa, a small town at the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds around 15 miles from Lincoln. The town has a Camping and Caravanning Club Site and several guest houses and hotels.

Riders are responsible for arranging their own travel and accommodation but car sharing with other riders would be possible.

You can arrive Friday evening for a meal and socialising before the riding or be at the start point at 8.50am on Saturday morning for the first ride.

There are rides planned for Saturday and Sunday (see separate calendar entries). The Sunday ride should finish shortly after lunch to give plenty of time for the return journey.
