Cycling UK Louth
Cycling UK Louth and Covid-19
UPDATE FRIDAY 16th October 2020
"Cycling UK can no longer advise groups that they can rely on the organised activity exemption. Accordingly, our advice in England is that group rides in England should be restricted to a maximum of six participants"
As a consequence, with immediate effect, Cycling UK Louth 'mini' groups will revert back to a maximum of SIX participants.
Rides are now on a PRE-BOOKING system. When a second Ride Leader can be assured, there'll be a Group A and a Group B ride, PREFERABLY following different routes or possibly a reversal of the given route.
To add your name to the list, contact Tim; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Tel Landline: 01507 600084 Mobile: 07714 210918
*Riders must maintain a minimum distance of at least 1m + from each other.
*Where possible, riders should ride single file.
*When overtaking, don't cut in too quickly.
*Where possible, keep to the 1m + rule when passing pedestrians on pavements or the highway.
Ultimately, it's up to each individual to assess whether they wish to join a 'socially distanced ride', exercising their own judgement and common sense, having regard to their own safety, other road users, and infection rate.
We are a friendly and mixed group of cyclists from the Louth area, also encompassing much of East Lincolnshire.
We organise regular weekly rides plus occasional weekends away.
We also meet socially (off the bikes!) to plan our rides, hold occasional 'film nights' and to enjoy an annual dinner.
Unless otherwise stated, rides will start from the Louth Meridian Leisure Centre in Wood Lane (LN11 8SA). This includes Winter, Summer and Summer Wednesday Exploration rides.
Additionally, rides can easily be joined or left at either our coffee or lunch stops.
Winter rides, unless otherwise stated will start at 10.00 am and Summer Rides at 09.30 am.
Each year we organise a few car-assisted rides from other starting points such as the Humber Bridge so make sure you check our RIDES LIST,

Newcomers are sometimes concerned about their level of fitness and equipment. Don't worry - no special equipment is required and we can cater for all levels of fitness. If you just want a pleasant ride in good company or have an interest in campaigning for improved facilities for cyclists COME AND JOIN US. You will be made most welcome.
Our Winter, Summer and Summer Wednesday Exploration rides usually start from the Louth Meridian Leisure Centre in Wood Lane (LN11 8SA) at 9.30 am from March through to October and at 10.00 am from November through to March (following the changing of the clocks).
