The Lindsey Trail is being opened on 29th April at 11.00 at Willingham Woods, Market Rasen. The trail is now signed but the signs are quite small (purple with a sort of wheel motif) and if you're not sure of the area I would recommend the OS Explorer maps 273 Wolds South (Horncastle & Woodhall Spa) and 282 Wolds North (Louth and Market Rasen).
The trail is now 69 miles with 47 on quiet roads and 22 off road - the off road we've done so far is on reasonable tracks.
Not many tea stops on route but plenty of pubs in the villages. Cafes just off route: Horncastle (loads), Stockwith Mill just north of Hagworthingham (cross the A158 in the village and the trail takes you down the road and left onto a bridleway - to get to Stockwith, just carry on a bit further down the hill on the road and it's on the left - I recommend the HUGE scones). Then there's a decent one at Tetford at the fishing lake - you'll work off the cake afterwards as all the roads out of the village are up hills). Coffee shop in Tealby (not been in it) and a good one at Walesby. Loads of choice in Market Rasen.
Unfortunately, we can't make it on 29th but I hope we'll see a few of you out there at some point over the coming months. If you see a bloke on an Orange and a short creaky old bird on a blue Cannondale - that's us!
Great info Salsprocket.
Any chance of marking which parts are off road on the map on page 1?
All being well we will do at least some of the trail on the 29th.
