Welcome to the Woodhall Wheelers social cycling club.
The club was started by a small group of friends in early 2014. The founding members, all keen cyclists, decided to share their passion with the wider community. Rides are not restricted to the immediate environs of Woodhall Spa and have already included trips to view the Tours of France and Britain and a resort to resort ride. The club and website are continuing to develop with exciting plans for 2017.
The club is based in the delightful village of Woodhall Spa, on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, giving us a choice of many different types of rides. A six mile ride to Horncastle takes us to the edge of the Wolds where many 15% climbs can be encountered; there are also great choices of flat routes plus several cycle tracks around the area.
We welcome all riders be it novice or experienced but you will need to be reasonably fit and capable of riding 15 miles which would enable you to manage a Saturday ride of 20 or 25 miles. Sunday rides are usually longer than 25 miles and may include one or more steepish hills so you will need to be pretty fit for those, we don’t as a rule stop for a break on rides less that 40 miles. If you have any doubts about your fitness please consult your doctor before taking part. Riders must be 16 years of age minimum, however if you are under 18 your parent/guardian must also participate in the ride. Our rides are listed in the Ride Diary
