Cycling

Pedal power your way to relaxation!

 

Take your pick from challenging trails for serious cyclists to fun easy-riding cycle routes, whether in the gently rolling Lincolnshire Wolds, the picturesque Vales, coastal tracks and waterway trails.

And, of course, there are plenty of village pubs, traditional cafes and welcoming B&Bs for resting weary legs.

Challenge family and friends, or yourself, with the long distance Hull-to-Harwich National Cycle Route, which stretches from Barton-upon-Humber to Holbeach in the Lincolnshire Fens.

 

For a gentler, more leisurely ride stick to the flat country lanes and ancient bridleways... or try one of the less challenging Lincolnshire Wolds Cycle Routes, six trails suitable for cyclists of all abilities, from the beginner to the more advanced.  For another cycle route that is on a flat surface try the Spa Trail that follows the mid section of the old Horncastle to Woodhall Junction railway line and part of the Horncastle Canal and also part of the Viking Way.

Or how about cycling past Lincoln Red cattle, Lincoln Longwool sheep and Curly Coat pigs... and a Viking long ship? Find them on the ‘Water Rail Way', a traffic-free cycle path along the former Lincoln to Boston railway, dotted with inspirational sculptures celebrating Lincolnshire wildlife as well as the words of Lincolnshire poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

This 33 mile route links Lincoln and Boston.  There are 20 miles of off-road surfaced paths suitable for walking, cycling and horse riding.  Using disused railway lines for a long stretch, it runs parallel to the River Witham.  The other 13 miles are on quiet country lanes.
