Charity Ride 2022
Matt's Lumpy Laughton Loop
04 October 2022
I know you were in the London Marathon or maybe you were on a park run but you missed a good ride today. We didn’t all miss out of course those that didn’t were: Matt Lowe (ride leader), Kevin Thomas, Pete Hanks, Christina Cooper, Ian who became John Huggins, and was the ghost throughout, together with Nick Kay for entertainment value. Oh and almost forgot me, Martin Crapper.
Blue feature ride to Lincoln' Steam Punk festival
29 August 2022
We wandered through small and large villages on our way to the SUSTRANS route which would take us most of the way into Lincoln - South Wheatley, Sturton Le Steeple, North Leverton, South Leverton, Treswell, Stokeham and Laneham before bypassing Dunham on Trent and reaching the start of the off road bit at Fledborough, eleven and a half miles into the ride.
Blue ride to Idle Valley or 10 Green Bottles
21 August 2022
I’m sure improvisation is a key attribute of a less than average ride leader. So waking from an on-bike snooze I had us turning right on Job Lane without a flicker of consciousness. Fully awake by the end of Job Lane we turned left and rejoined the planned route in the centre of the village having desperately sought for an outstanding landmark to explain the “diversion”.
Blue Ride to Lotties at the Butterfly Farm
14 August 2022
Thirty Two degrees was forecast on one of my Apps, Will anyone turn up for a gentle stroll through the countryside? No doubt at least seven others thought the same. I, for one, was pleased I hadn’t gone on the cleetthorpes ride with the red group. But turn up we all did, we seven, and after what seemed a lot of chatting we set off AND….
Red Ride to Leger Lakes
07 August 2022
In the absence of our regular leader, it was a case of situation vacant and as no one is more vacant than me, I volunteered myself.
Blue Ride to Sandtoft's Happy Café
07 August 2022
We were five, nearly six but John H had decided to take the red ride route and John C thought he could keep up with the red ride so both left us. Secretly we knew they were better off there anyway!
Martin's Midweek Evening Ride
03 August 2022
No Adrian this week, he’s on some beach somewhere in his budgie smugglers but there were still 9 of us for this week’s midweek evening ride.
Blue ride to Retford
31 July 2022
We three, Pete, Denise Motley and me, Martin Crapper didn’t quite leave the cricket club before the rain started so it was a trio of cyclists in cycling style so’westers who headed out.
TVC Blue Ride to Manvers Lake
17 July 2022
So, with the true Blue Ride Leader being indisposed – something to do with COVID (isn’t that getting to be old hat nowadays?), it fell upon the Trainee Ride Leader to propose, plan and execute a Blue ride.
Inaugural TVC Ladies ride to Thaymar Café
17 July 2022
17th July promised to be a hot one, so the choice of Thaymar Café and Ice Cream parlour was a good one, in fact ice-cream flavours had been chosen well in advance of the ride.
Red Ride: Happy Café
03 July 2022
After a few hillier rides a request was made for a flat route this week, aiming to please a trip to the Isle of Axholme and the Happy Cafe at Sandtoft was called for.
29 June 2022
The planned Ride Leader had to cancel at the last minute so we needed a plan B, cue Lawrence who had a ride up his sleeve!
