Saturday 25th June, Mablethorpe club ride - The clubs big bike ride to Mablethorpe last Saturday 25thJune,saw 7 members turn up at Marshall’s Yard for the 8am start.LucyOverton,KeithHudson,AdenBott,StephenCockerham,George& Jack Bramham along with chairman Mike Overton started off under grey skies and an unpromising forecast,on the good side though it was warm with very little wind.The route took us out of Gainsborough along the A156 to Lea,where a left turn was made on to the B1241 to Stow then following the minor road to Ingham,on to Cammeringham,where left to tackle the first climb of the day up Cammeringhamhill.We now made steady progress east,crossing the A15, through Hackthorn and on to Faldingworth,then taking the minor roads to Linwood,joining the B1202 to Market Rasen and on to Willingham Woods picnic site for bacon butties & coffee. 30miles done and the skies beginning to brighten as we made our way along the A631 to North Willingham on the edge of the wolds,turning right on the minor road to Sixhills,now the climbing begins in earnest with the gentle introduction of Sixhills,followed by an undulating section through Hainton and South Willingham,going left on to the much tougher climb to gain the ridge at Belmont.Afterregrouping,the descent down to Donnington on Bain was hairy and too quickly we on the one and a half mile climb with some tough sections to the Bluestone Heath road. The group now quickly got back into its rhythm along the gentle ridge road to Cadwell,joining the main road towards Louth,before turning right on the long gentle descent into Tathwell.
Here the sun came out briefly,as riders climbed the last hill to the southern edge of the Louth bypass A16.We now continued along the A157 through Legbourne before turning on to the minor Meers Bank road just after Withern.Now there was a noticeable sea breeze blowing into our faces as we approached Mablethorpe North End with everyone looking forward to fish and chips. It was blue skies and sunshine as we sat down to eat on the out door tables on the sea front,where a pleasant hour was passed.
The return journey.
As we left Mablethorpe heading north on the A1031 all eyes turned to the west, where heavy shower clouds could be seen drifting across the distant wolds. Quickly now we turned left back on country lanes passing through Theddlethorpe All Saints,crossing the B1200 at Saltfleetby St Peter and on to South Cockerington. Jack Bramham was now setting a perfect pace as the route zig zagged through a maze of country lanes bringing us ever closer to the hills. Finally we arrived at Little Grimsby and turning left then right down a small road with a no through road sign on it,at the end of the road there is a small path which takes you down to the A16.
Crossing the A16 and on to the lane that climbs the hill to North Elkington,as we regrouped at the top a sudden rumble of thunder and the first drops of rain began to fall.A pause to don rain jackets and we were off again,along the top before descending into Binbrook,no café here so we continued,pausing only briefly to take off rain jackets as the rain never amounted to much. Now on a hilly section,the road climbing then descending to Thoresway,before immediately climbing and then descending on very wet roads to Rothwell.At this point Lucy sustained a puncture,so there was a delay before tackling the final hill up to High Street then down to Nettleton.
The group now began to gather pace as we raced on to Moortown and on to towards South Kelsey,where we were joined by Chris Overton who came out to accompany us on this final leg.The route now took a familiar turn,Brandywharf,Waddingham,Grayingham crossroads and back to Blyton.Taking the quiet lanes through Blyton Carrs then Laughton Lane,the group arrived back in Morton to go their separate ways,having agreed it had been a memorable days cycling. Mike.
