Ron Smith routes
Posted on 2022-04-23 by Janice Wakefield

Recently some sections of our planned rides have been surface dressed (gritted).
100k
On the return leg of the 100k, the route turns left approx. 2 miles after passing Ludford Cafe. This unclassified road from A631 towards Great Tows was freshly gritted (Approx 2.5 miles) only Wednesday or Thursday. It would be worth considering continuing on the A631 towards Louth to take the next left towards Kelstern. It will add approx. 1 mile.
65k
The return leg turns left off the Caistor High street to drop down to Thorsway. This road has been gritted a short time ago. While not freshly laid, it is on a descent and may be better avoided. Suggest turn left just under 1 mile after passing Caistor top. Direction Rothwell. In Rothwell at the Blacksmith Arms turn right (Care) direction Thoresway. Care needed on the descent to Thoresway crossroads to turn Left and pick up the route. This reduces the ride distance by approx 1 mile but adds in an extra challenge of a tough climb out of Rothwell.

London Edinburgh London
Posted on 2022-03-22 by Janice Wakefield

We have received the following information from the organisers of this event.
I am writing to ask for your help recruiting the team needed to make the London Edinburgh London (LEL) audax happen this year.
LEL 2022 will involve around 2,000 riders from around the world attempting the 1,500km round trip in under 125 hours. Above all, it’s a celebration of the cycling community - both on the road and among the army of volunteers who run LEL and who bring the event to life.
We have people cooking meals, supervising dormitories, fixing wheels, guarding bike parks, dispensing sympathy and much more. Because so many of our helpers come from the cycling family, there is fantastic camaraderie amongst the teams of strangers that we bring together. And as cyclists themselves, our helpers are well placed to understand what a weary rider needs to eat or hear just to keep them going a little bit longer.
The event starts on Sunday 7 August and winds its way smack bang through your home territory with control points at Louth and Hessle.
We’re looking for people who are can help out for a few hours during busy times or are willing to get involved for longer; especially during the week. We welcome individuals (who quickly find themselves in a team which will include supporters from around the world) or groups of friends or team mates. Whilst most of the roles require little more than a desire to be involved, we can make good use of extra skills such as languages, mechanics, drivers and even social media know how.
If people are interested they can find out more in an excellent Cycling UK feature at https://www.cyclinguk.org/article/volunteers-needed-london-edinburgh-london
or they can register on the LEL website at https://londonedinburghlondon.com/volunteer
It could the startof a great adventure and some amazing new friendships!
It would be brilliant if you were able to bring this to the attention of your clubmates and I look forward to meeting some of them in August (either as riders or helpers). I should of course be very happy to explain more if anyone wanted more information.
Many thanks,
Peter
