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 ( a full member group of Cycling UK).

  • Wednesday 26th September 2018 A beautiful sunny early autumn day saw an excellent turnout. Paul, Jill, Anne, David, Rob, Patrick, John, Phil, Rosalind and Lawrie decided on a shorter ride and headed south. Unfortunately Rosalind was not feeling too well and she and Phil returned home just before reaching Quorn. The remaining riders headed across the Soar to Barrow and then on up Melton Road and Paudy Lane towards Six Hills, turning south west into Berrycott Lane riding downhill ;but into the wind with good view to either side into Seagrave. The riders passed Seagrave Primary School where the childrens play time was drawn to an end by the bell monitor ringing vigorously before descending to Sileby to take refreshments at the Green Place ...

John said that the long ride would Include riding up hill and into the wind and the massed numbers about to step forward went into reverse gear faster than a Mussolini led tank driver. 4 were left to follow Howard either because they were hard of hearing or just too dumb to know any different.
