5 of us rode the Lincoln Imp on Saturday, starting at Reepham, east of Lincoln. The first 25 miles was out towards the coast, fairly flat but straight into a tough easterly wind to the first control and cafe stop. We then turned NW and climbed up into the Lincolnshire Wolds. A tough climb up at Tetford then rolling roads to the 2nd stop at Ludford. Then we turned back towards Lincoln and a flat last 15 miles back to the finish. We got round in 4.5 hours riding time, average just over 15 mph with 2500 feet of climbing. A lovely route on quiet roads with great scenery.

A cold day, but not as cold as yesterday. Still a little ice around so kept off the lanes at first. Some went to Newark while ten of us had an easy ride to Farnsfield including Jon Kettell up from Somerset on a visit. A very social gathering at the Woodberry Café for a longer stop than usual. Clockwise from left Mark Haywood, Richard Buckwell, Kevin Humphreys, Ed Ward, Jon Kettell, Phil Hooks, Dave Gretton, Michael Falter, James Pam and Dave Waring.
