Why you might like to come along on one of our rides.

The Loughborough Wednesday Cyclists are a group of people who enjoy cycling but for one reason or another like to keep the mileage and speed low and the infusion of tea high. Providing the weather looks as if it will be kind, we gather at the Outwoods Drive roundabout at 9-30 am on Wednesdays (see map on the right). Please check here to see if there is to be a ride or email lboro.wcyclists@gmail.com or phone John Catt on 01509 211468

It is strongly advisable that riders take out membership of Cycling UK to obtain Third Party Insurance cover and other benefits.

We are an informal group affiliated to Leicestershire & Rutland Cyclists' Touring Club (part of Cycling UK).

  • Wednesday 12th July 2017 A cool but sunny morning saw Clyde, Graham, Phil, Eric (with a new rear wheel), Rob, Patrick, Rosalind, Lynn, John and Terry gather at Outwoods Drive roundabout. As the breeze was from the north east it was decided to go upwind through the University and then via the cycle route alongside the Black Brook and then tho Hathern, where a short tour of the village was incorporated in order to avoid the main road. After a rather less pleasant section of the ride along the A6006 through Zouch, the riders carried on north through Sutton Bonnington, Kingston of Soar before turning into West Leake Lane to make their way to refreshments at the Chefs Cafe in East Leake.

  • Wednesday 21st June 2017 A beautiful summers day tempted Howard, Graham, Eric, Derek and John to set out on a slightly longer ride than normal to East Goscote nurseries. The route taken being through the Market Place (before the witching hour of 10am) and then via Meadow Lane to Walton on the Wolds, Seagrave, Thrussington and down the Wreake valley to Cossington for refreshment at East Goscote Nurseries. Unfortunately as the ride progressed Eric found he was having to work harder due to his wheel rubbing.  It was discovered that he had a broken spoke in his rear wheel which was causing the wheel the buckle. After refreshment the rides took the most direct route back to Loughborough via Sileby and Mountsorrel.
