Cycling UK Louth and Covid-19
Club rides and activities are temporarily suspended.
*UPDATE MONDAY 4TH JANUARY 2021*
National Lockdown in England effective midnight, Monday 4th January 2021
A few changes from Tier 4 that will affect travelling and exercise and how we can cycle over the coming weeks. This post is likely to be updated but here's a summary:
You may leave the home to exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
Local meaning avoiding travelling outside of your village, town or the part of a city where you live wherever possible (but you can travel a short distance within your area if necessary - for example, to access an open space).
You cannot leave your home for the purpose of recreation or leisure (e.g. a picnic or a social meeting).
It would appear that there is no limit to the time and distance you can cycle on your once a day exercise and Cycling UK are in full support of non-group cycling.

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).
