    A few of us from RAF Waddo ride πŸ™‚

    Excellent, how often do you get out? How many in your group?

    Hi everyone, its been three years since I posted on here so thought it was about time I came back. Are there any riders from harmston in Lincoln or from any of the cliff villages?

    post up on http://www.louthnet.com/LAMB – we get riders and rides from all oer Lincs, so there should be something reasonably local.

    I’m just saying I live in the same village so I can find where he lives and pinch his bikes….

    Or perhaps that’s what he’s going to do to me?!

    Only kidding!

    I’m in a cliff village but north of Lincoln and my mate he lives in a cliff village too even further north of Lincoln πŸ˜€ to be honest I’m just getting going again but mostly just go to Sherwood pines in the week. As it is so dry at the min there is a route over in the wolds that we did for a while a couple of yrs ago about 23 miles iirc but all easy rolling stuff nothing technical just good for getting fit really.

    Conan257 have you been to the wolds at all? Have a look at os map starting from walesby just north of market rasen then head towards thoresway I can’t remember where else we went after that. I could ride it but can’t tell you the names of places but it is mostly off road. As I say I tend to go to pines mostly just a lot more trails esp off piste!

    Shame war of the wolds isn’t on this year πŸ™ that’s great in the dry. The wolds is what it is. I have an old skool loop that goes out of Ruskington it’s a good training ride and pod for just getting out. It’s lincs so we have to make do πŸ™‚
    Conan is also another RAF Waddo Waller πŸ˜‰

    I’m close to Harmston, there’s quite a few rides near if you like Bridleway riding. Just need a OS map and string them together, there’s loads in the area.

    High Dike to Byards leap via Gorse Hill Covert / Temple Bruer is quite good for ride for fitness

    I find the peaks best bang for buck if travelling, but is a fair drive.

    As a lad me and friends used to ride Harmston quarry regularly, was good fun, that was 20 years ago though

    If you do go out with Litespeed Noodle try not to break him! Any time you’re in Wilts give me a shout!

    Hahaha I own you Si πŸ˜‰

    I use the hug mapping site and get busy from there.

    I do break easily, as beaker is well aware!

    Hubamonster, harmston quarry looks like it would great fun. I’m guessing access and security wasn’t so much of an issue 20 years ago.

    Conan257, seeing as tho we’re practically neighbours it would be rude not to go for a blast sometime.

    There’s loads of us up at scampton! Like everyone else in Lincolnshire, we’re RAF types who’ve been posted from areas with loads of great riding.

    I live in a village north of Lincoln(near Scampton) and ride and train regularly on the Wolds, areas from Willingham, Market Rasen out towards Grimsby and down towards Binbrook etc. Both road and XC I know the area very well, I have some great winter and summer XC loops anywhere up to 80 miles with >5000ft of climbing(not a lot of sustained climbing but it goes up and down a lot up there)almost all the roads linking the XC bits are quiet country lanes and there are some great tea rooms/coffee shops dotted about.

    Harmston Quarry wasn’t as active as it is now, plus if anyone one caught us was easy when your a kid to just say “sorry didn’t know”, doesn’t work at my age now.

    We also used to always ride the Viking way, again cant really do that now, although some parts are ridable.

    I’d be interested in any Wolds routes anyone has (gpx or keypoints on route). I did 45 mile of strung together localish bridleways on Saturday and saw less than 10 people the whole ride, was good if your into that sort of thing

    all our wolds rides used to start from willingham woods, with a few variations on routes depending on length of ride.

    ought to get back into riding there really…….

    litespeed, I think I’ve been given a pass on Sunday if you fancy getting out.

    I’m on Crescent Mews, out of interest…

    Some local .gpx trails here http://www.everytrail.com/group/view?group_id=167 from the Louth Area Mountain Bike site.

    Just be aware that some of them are better in decent weather, and some are more cheeky than others.

    ScamptonLincolnshire seems to be the hub for mountain bikers in Lincolnshire, ace sparky where are you then? Aisthorpe, brattleby??

    I road the wolds once with a guy from work. About 30 miles and it damn near killed me!

    Conan257, your just round the corner from me! The next three weekends are difficult for me with family commitments, work and holidays. Back to normal in June! If I do happen to get any time before then tho I’ll post back on this thread and give you a heads up. Out of interest what you riding?

    No problemo, email in profile just drop me a message sometime. Trying to do near-weekly (midweek) night rides at Sherwood if you’re that way inclined.

    I’m on a Titus FTMC, slightly over-biked for the majority of my riding, but does the job!
