Lincolnshire is situated in England’s East Midlands, running from the Humber Estuary down to The Wash, and is one of the country’s most welcoming but least discovered cycling destinations.

Ride in the presence of history at Lincoln Castle, past stately homes and historic houses like Burghley House and Normanby Hall, or perhaps take the Water Rail Way to the east of Lincoln and explore the beautiful, award-winning village of Woodhall Spa and find out about the pivotal role it played in aviation history.

Discover a great mix of leisure and distance rides for all abilities.
