Club nightsPosted on 2021-09-01 by Janice Wakefield
The Fire Station on Cromwell Road are still not letting out their community room for group meetings so there will not be any club nights until we get the nod from them.

Tonight's Hill ClimbPosted on 2021-08-24 by Janice Wakefield
Tonight's hill climb starts at 6.45 ish. It looks like tail wind all the way up so opportunity for a personal best and maybe the old record will be broken. Its rumoured these conditions on happen once every 41 years.

HI All. Paul and family would welcome any local cyclists who may want to join Karen's funeral cortege on Thursday.

Karen WakefieldPosted on 2021-07-13 by Janice Wakefield
We are deeply saddened to announce that our club treasurer, Karen Wakefield, has passed away following a very brave battle with cancer. Along with Paul, her husband of 42 years, Karen was instrumental in making the Lindsey Roads Cycling Club what it is today. Together they organised several open time trials on behalf of LRCC. Karen has been a regular timekeeper at the club time trials for many years as well as a judge at road races and cyclo crosses all over Lincolnshire. As those of you who have ridden any of our reliability trials can testify, her cake making skills were legendary. For many years she has also arranged the club dinner and prize presentation and made sure all the trophies and medals were engraved and polished ready to be handed out. She will be very much missed by us all. Karen's funeral will take place on Thursday 22nd July at 12:45 at Grimsby Crematorium and there will be a Wake afterwards at Stallingborough Grange. Everyone is welcome at the Crematorium although there may still be some restrictions in place as regards the number of mourners allowed inside. We have been advised that there there will be speakers to relay the service outside if necessary. Flowers are welcome (Kettles funeral directors) or alternatively donations can be made to St Andrew's Hospice.
Fonaby 2 Lap 15th JunePosted on 2021-06-14 by Janice Wakefield
Just been up to Caistor top. Member of work force assured me the section of Riby drag we need will still be open tomorrow night, so Fonaby 2 Lap is still on.
1st June Fonaby 1 Lap TT - Cancellation.Posted on 2021-05-31 by Janice Wakefield
Hi All, I've just been out to look at the Riby drag Section for tomorrow nights TT. While the surface has improved quicker than I expected I would still prefer to leave a bit more time for it to settle further. Plus the Highways Dept. have left the warning signage with 20MPH speed restrictions in place. So unfortunately no event will take place.
Club TT Cancelled for 18th MayPosted on 2021-05-16 by Janice Wakefield
Wednesday and Thursday of last week substantial portion of the Riby Drag received fresh coatings of grit. While usable with care and lower speeds it would not be safe for racing. My contact at Lincs police to discuss circuit changes due to such a situation is currently unavailable. So unfortunately the Tuesday 16.4 is Cancelled with no replacement. It may be possible to run the event on a Saturday later in the year.
Club retro time trialPosted on 2021-04-22 by Janice Wakefield
Our club retro 10 mile time trial takes place next Tuesday 27th April on the C10/4 course between Limber and Laceby roundabout. To compete for the Terry Jarman retro trophy and to qualify for club league points riders must ride a road bike with no tri bars and wheels with a maximum depth of 35mm. Riders can still ride TT bikes but their times won't count.
