Postponed due to the adverse driving conditions

Sunday January 20th...


... a gentle ride to break you all back into the saddle including a mix of doubletrack, singletrack and some link sections of road around the undulating Wolds of North Lincolnshire, the ride finishes with around a mile of fast doubletrack, descending back into the village of Binbrook. No major climbs, nothing technical (well a couple of greasy wooden bridges and one short steepish greasy rooty climb)

The ride is usually around 10 miles long if I we do the classic route, but I will dig out the OS maps and have a gander to see if I can up this to around 15 miles or so

There is no food en route although there is a small cafe in Binbrook, provided it's still open, so bring your own grub just in case. There is a small village shop for crisps/chocolate bars etc in Binbrook if you need to top up supplies

Starting at Binbrook market place map link

Postcode LN8 6DE should get you to the market place

Meet at 9.45 for a 10am start from the centre of the market place as in the map link above

Bike wash available, the more folks bring water the more bikes we can clean, a couple of litres each should be enough

Looking forward to it Andy, those few extra miles sound like a good idea if they don't mess your route up.

I think that i can add a couple of extra miles onto the route, I don't think that I've ridden the extra bit before so it'll be a bit of fun for all of us
