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 phone Ray Clay on 01509 261068 or email@example.com.
It is strongly advisable that riders take out membership of Cycling UK to obtain Third Party Insurance cover and other benefits.
Wednesday 26th April 2017A cool and overcast day saw a low turnout with John, Eric and Terry turning out for the ride. It was decided to head for a new tea place for the group that John had used the previous summer - Breedon Priory Golf Club at Wilson. The riders set out across Garendon park and as they came into Shepshed a rubbing noice could be heard coming from Eric's rear wheel. Upon investigation it was fould that a nail was lodged in the tyre. Terry deftly removed the offending object and luckily the inner tube had not be punctured and the riders proceeded with the minimum of delay. Unfortunately on arrival at the Club it was found that it had sadly ...

Wednesday 19th April 2017We took the back route out of Loughborough, through Garendon Park to Shepshed. From there we went along Tickow Lane to Charley Road and then onto Oaks Road, for our Coffee stop at St Joseph's. It was nice and sunny at St Joseph's and out of the wind so we sat outside. Present were Terry, Anne, Eric, Phil, (for the first time), Patrick and myself. It seemed that a number of us needed to be back early, so the return journey was back on Oaks Road, continue along Charley Road and then downhill on Nanpantan Road all the way into Loughborough.

Wednesday 12th April 2017Today's ride meant a doing a short distance on a couple of main roads. Otherwise we kept to quiet lanes to the cafe at 6 Acres Nursery. It was nice and warm so we were a bit reluctant to leave. We came back through East Leake and over Fox Hill. Present were Peter, Tony, Clyde, Lyn and myself.

Wednesday 5th April 2017Eric, Clyde, Graham, John and Lynn gathered at Outwoods Drive on a very pleasant early Spring day and as the wind was in the north west decided to head for Beth's Tearoom at Breedon. The riders headed out through the University and across Garendon Park to Shephed, proceeding then along Sustrans Route 6 to Belton, Osgathorpe and Worthington. In Worthington Lynn decided to take advantage of the fact that he was passing the home of a friend who had been ill and stop off for a chat and then make his way home independently. The remaining four riders processed to Breedon and enjoyed the usual excellent repast at the tearoom which had already been invaded by another group of ...

Wednesday 15th March 2017A beautiful spring day awaited Patrick, Derek, Graham, Eric, Howard and John. The riders headed south past Mucklin Wood and out toward Swithand, spotting a "March Hare" in the field on the left of Brand Lane. Passing through the new housing estate at Rothley, the riders met up with Ray Clay at Birstall Methodist Church Hall for refreshments. Before leaving they were able to admire Dave Warnock's "Bike for Life" with its plastic chain and Rolhoff gearing. The riders returned via Watermead Park (where they spotted a large heron only a few yards from the cycle track), Sileby and Mountsorrel arriving back in Loughborough a few minutes after noon.
