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).

John demonstrated his best two wheel manoeuvres on his semi recumbent to get through some of the narrower gateways.  From there we cycled ...

  • Wednesday 8th November 2017 It was a beautiful sunny but chilly autumn day that greeted Ian, Patrick, Lyn, Eric, Terry, Brian, John, Howard, Phil, Rosalind, Jeff and Clyde when they gathered out Outwoods drive.

The ride skirted Shepshed via Anson Road and Tickow Lane before proceeding north on Hallaford Road. The ride split with John and Rosalind taking the more direct route to Manor Farm at Long Whatton, while Howard led the larger part of the group via Belton. John had to leave the tea shop early as he had a ...
