Welcome to the website of Lindsey Roads Cycling Club. Since its inception in October 1970 the club has been run by its members to promote cycling, both social and competitive, in the North East Lincolnshire area. We are affiliated to British Cycling, Cycling Time Trials, Cycling UK, Lincolnshire Road Riding Association and the British Schools Cycling Association. We run a program of club time trials from April to August and reliability trials in March and September as well as year round weekly rides. Please use the navigation to the left to find out more

50th ANNIVERSARY


Due to the ongoing situation with the Coronavirus Pandemic, the organisers of the club’s 50th Anniversary Celebrations have reluctantly decided to postpone the event to a date and venue sometime next year. We are already looking at venues/dates, and, as soon as we have some news on this situation, we will let everyone know. Those of you who have already purchased tickets, there are two decisions to make. 1:- The money you have paid can be left where it is as it will be valid for next year. 2:- Those of you who find that they are unable to go to the alternative arrangements, will have up to one month before the re-arranged date, to claim their money back, MINUS £1 per person, (for administration fees). Please bear with us at this difficult time. It may take a little while to get this sorted. Any suggestions of a suitable venue (seating up to 150, provide buffet meals, close access to countryside) would be most welcome. As the Ross Tiger Sportive is set to be run on Sunday, 3rd July next year, it could be possible to hold the 50th Anniversary the day before, but this is just a suggestion at this point.

Bob Kerr rides 2020
Posted on 2020-08-27 by Janice Wakefield

Due to current restrictions on riding in groups we have regretfully decided to cancel the Bob Kerr rides that were due to take place on Sunday 6th September. At the moment recommendations are for groups of no more than 6 riders and it would also be impossible to provide our usual refreshment stop with'social distancing. If anyone would still like to ride round the usual course, details of all routes can be found below.

CLUB MID WEEK TT EVENT CHANGE
Posted on 2020-08-17 by Janice Wakefield

Tomorrow nights Club TT is being moved to a Fonaby 1 lap. Start time 6.45pm. Meet as usual in Great Limber Village Hall car park. The road surface on the Super Hilly Course is not usable on safety grounds. The section from Cuxwold to Rothwell has suffered over the last few years and is in a very poor condition for around 600m. Hence the route change.

Club TT 4th August
Posted on 2020-07-28 by Janice Wakefield

Next Tuesday will be a Fonaby 1 Lap event. This will be open to existing club members only. Sign on will be in the car park at Limber Village Hall but the hall itself won't be open. Please come ready to race or get changed in your car. There is to be no warming up on turbos or rollers. Sign on sheets will be on a table and you should sign yourself on using a pen provided that should then be put in a 'used pen' box. Please don't crowd round the table and just take the next number from the pile. Entry fee is £4 and please bring the correct money. Under 18s will need a signed parent/guardian permission form which can be downloaded from the CTT website. On finishing there will be a box that you should drop your number in. There will be sanitizer on the table. When waiting at the start please make sure you are at least 2 metres behind the rider in front and please don't arrive too early. There will be no 'pusher off' and all riders will start with one foot on the floor. All riders must have a working rear light on their bike. This is an exerpt from the CTT risk assessment:'People should be reminded that they should NOT be socialising with others in the car park and should upon leaving their car, get their bike out and go straight out onto the road to warm up; a large collection of people has a negative perception and should be avoided.' Please don't ask the timekeepers for your time they will be posted on line ASAP after the event.Further instructions from CTT say: Competitors on finishing should not loiter at the HQ/Car Park and should pack away and leave immediately upon completion of the race. Please also familiarise yourself with the rules on drafting and overtaking that are available on the CTT website. I know this all seems a bit draconian but in order to promote the events we have to follow the CTT risk assessment and do our best to keep everyone safe.

CLUB MID WEEK TT EVENTS

Other specific detail about how we will adapt to meet the restrictions will be communicated before 4th August.

Covid 19 update
Posted on 2020-06-25 by Janice Wakefield

British cycling have updated their guidance for club activities so take a look at their web page:-https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/about/article/20200618-about-bc-news-British-Cycling-announces-reintroduction-of-club-and-group-activity-0

Covid 19 update
Posted on 2020-06-14 by Janice Wakefield

Following the announcement that 6 people from different households can exercise together British Cycling have issued this information: While the Government guidance now permits groups of up to six to ride together, British Cycling believes that the need to maintain a two-metre distance while riding as a group of six may present practical difficulties and potential risks. For this reason, we would strongly encourage riders to continue to cycle in smaller groups at present, and only ride in a group of six if they are absolutely sure that it is safe to do so (for example, in a park). We would also like to reiterate to cyclists the need to be mindful of keeping a two-metre distance when overtaking other cyclists and from pedestrians who may be walking on pavements at the side of the road. If the Government allows groups of six to ride together, does that means the suspension on club and group rides remains in place? Yes. Last week (Wednesday 27 May) we announced that all formalised group and club activity (including club runs, HSBC UK Breeze rides and similar) would be suspended until Saturday 4 July, and this suspension remains in place. As detailed in our earlier statement, we will review this on a fortnightly basis, considering guidance from across the relevant devolved administrations, and giving two weeks’ notice of any changes. We are now working on new guidance for clubs and Ride Leaders on how they can safely lead group rides while maintaining social distancing, and will share this at the earliest possible opportunity.

Covid 19 update
Posted on 2020-05-29 by Janice Wakefield

British cycling have announced the suspension of national and international level racing until 1st September 2020. Regional racing and Sportives are suspended until 1st August 2020. CTT events are suspended until 30th June 2020 and we are awaiting further guidance on how time trialling could be resumed after that. TLI cycling, under whose rules we run our club road races, have cancelled all events until further notice.

Event cancellations due to Covid 19
Posted on 2020-03-18 by Janice Wakefield

Hi All. TLI, CTT and Cycling UK have all cancelled their permissions to continue holding any events that they cover. The advice includes slightly different "potential end dates" ranging from mid May through to the end of May. So to offer some form of clarity LRCC are cancelling all our planned cycling events including club nights and social rides until and including Sunday 31st May. All national bodies are to review the situation at some point in the future. However it may mean the suspension of events continues pass the 31st May, we will keep you posted. As a fitter active part of society it is easy to look at our own needs to keep cycling. While this is not good news I feel we must act responsibly and not put either ourselves or members of our families or indeed the wider public at any risks. Re the Clubs Handicap Road events we are hoping to run events 3 and 4. So refunds will be organised for those who have entered via Rider HQ. Again we will update as we know more.
