Greater Lincolnshire – Cycling

Topic Progress:

Take your pick from challenging trails for serious cyclists to fun easy-riding cycle routes in the Lincolnshire Wolds, the picturesque Vales of South Kesteven, the North Sea coast and the Lincolnshire Fens.

Challenge yourself by cycling the long-distance 369 mile Hull to Harwich National Cycle Route; the Lincolnshire section stretches from Barton-upon-Humber in the north to Holbeach in the south.

For a gentler ride try the level country lanes and ancient bridleways or one of the less challenging Lincolnshire Wolds Cycle Routes; these six trails are suitable for cyclists of all abilities, from the beginner to the more advanced.

Or how about cycling past Lincoln Red cattle, Lincoln Longwool sheep and Lincolnshire Curly Coat pigs. You can find all these attractions on  Water Rail Way, a traffic-free cycle path along the former Lincoln to Boston railway which is dotted with inspirational sculptures celebrating Lincolnshire wildlife as well as the words of Lincolnshire poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

The Spa Trail follows the old Horncastle to Woodhall Junction railway line, part of the Horncastle Canal and part of the Viking Way; it also has a number of artworks including a Viking long ship.
