Gainsborough Aegir Cycling Club riders rode together to A Bite to Eat Café at Messingham on Sunday’s leisure ride.

With a strong southerly wind the riders decided to take a longer route out through The Isle of Axhome, crossing the River Trent at Keadby Bridge and heading to the lunch spot.

The group then returned to Gainsborough riding through Laughton Woods. The ride distance was 50 miles.

Daniel Nicholson, Trevor Halstead, David Chaffey Colin Smith, Paul Bacon, Loll Dickenson rode the 50 miles.

Pete Hanks took part as far as Misterton.

Arriving back in Gainsborough Haltead extended his ride by 105 miles, heading out through Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, a ride totalling 155 miles.

Both rides were difficult at times due to the strong head wind.

Next week’s Aegir ride will be held on Sunday 2nd November, when members will take part in a leisure ride to Gringley on the Hill, where they will meet up with Retford Wheelers for the Hill Climb and Free Wheeling competition. Riders should meet at Roseway, Gainsborough at 9.20am.
