The spectacular countryside of the Lincolnshire Wolds was enjoyed by Gainsborough Aegir Cycling Club in their latest ride, which was to Binbrook.

Loll Dickenson and Trevor Halstead took on the trek, which followed the B1241 to Stow and then headed across country, passing through Hackthorn, Faldingworth, Buslingthorpe, Lissington, West Torrington, East Barkwith, South Willingham, Hainton and Sixhills before arriving in Ludford for a lunch stop at the Viking Way Tearooms.

After an excellent lunch, the riders departed Ludford and headed for Binbrook, following the B1203 to Market Rasen and then the A631 to West Rasen. The route then moved on to Normanby-by-Spital, Spridlington and Fillingham and after arriving at Willingham-by-Stow, the ride headed homewards along the B1241, running into Gainsborough along Lea Road.

This coming Sunday, Aegir riders are off on their travels again, this time for some off-road riding on their mountaoin bikes. They should meet at Roseway ay 9.20 am.

The club, which was founded in 1936 and is named after the tidal wave on the River Trent, is always keen to attract new members who are interested in cycling either as a leisure pursuit or as a competitive sport. It runs a wide range of regular rides, including some for the family, and has an active racing section.
