A thread for all those Lincolnshire area riders who have a GPS device/mobile phone with a sportstracker app so that we can have a resource with all of our routes in

Here's today's ride based in Scunthorpe

Nice idea Andy.

I don't have a GPS logger, but here is one of mine South of Lincoln.

I'm not sure if these can be downloaded as a GPS type file.

Mobiles with sportstracker apps, dedicated GPS devices, even plotted routes on Google maps...

Any routes/formats are welcome and useful

If they can be exported to a device even better.

He are a few routes that I know of in the Brigg/Caistor area. It will be interesting to see what other gps tracks people use in (North) Lincolnshire area as there are not too many routes that I know of especially without racking up the miles of tarmac to link up trails!

Anyway here are a few routes that I frequent:

Broughton Woods/Alkborough:
http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=1246725

Wold Loop:
http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=1078624

Hibaldstow across to 40 mile Bicyclemania route and back:
http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=1246807

Viking Way:
http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=885528

Broughton Woods across to Manton and back:

I think you'll find you've just volunteered yourself for organising the next south bank ride there tag33 :wink:

Some interesting looking routes, what % of those are off/on road?

Swallow/Wold Newton Loop:

Most are between 1/2 off road and 2/3rd off road - offroad in the case of Lincolnshire being generally bridleways & farmers tracks so don't expect any red route trail centre stuff :wink:
You can make it closer to the 2/3rds off road if you miss out the 'commute' I do from Hibaldstow on most of the routes. The road parts are generally only very minor roads (that I would class as almost offroad riding that you need a mountain bike for as they are in such bad condition!)

Blimey is the trail situation that bad this side of the river :lol:

I'm slowly discovering routes around the south of Lincoln, so all being well I can start linking a few together to create a nice route for a smaller group event next year.

As expected they're all pretty flat, with just the one short sharp climb up the cliff.

This one is a nice one down to Stapleford woods, which I need to do another recce of soon.

My Sunday solo ride looping around Branston (Pickle's home village)

http://app.strava.com/rides/4777371

Quite a nice route, with about 50/50 road/off road.
