Lincolnshire is situated in England’s East Midlands, running from the Humber Estuary down to The Wash, and is one of the country’s most welcoming but least discovered cycling destinations. It’s a county of contrasts; with the rolling chalk hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds gradually making way to the flatlands of the Fens and Marshes in the south, and with miles of stunning coastline to the east.
It’s a wonderfully diverse county to explore by bike. From the charming cathedral city of Lincoln, with its quaint cobbled streets, boutique shops and vibrant centre, out into the wide-open spaces and vast skies of the surrounding countryside, you’ll find countless hidden gems to explore.
Ride in the presence of history at Lincoln Castle, past stately homes and historic houses like Burghley House and Normanby Hall, or perhaps take the Water Rail Way to the east of Lincoln and explore the beautiful, award-winning village of Woodhall Spa and find out about the pivotal role it played in aviation history.
Each of our cycle routes have been crafted to allow the visitor to experience different aspects of this great county.
Lincoln has been the beating heart of the county since Roman times is a perfect base from which to explore. Pedal around the city to discover its steep cobbled streets, beautiful cathedral and medieval buildings, and then venture further afield using a myriad of cycleways which will transport you into open countryside in no time.
Meander through this stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A procession of quiet country lanes, canal-side cycleways and reclaimed railway paths will take you on a leisurely journey through historic market towns and villages, past abbeys, ruined castles, centuries old farmsteads and some of the oldest churches in Britain.
Some magnificent views await you on this relaxing coastal ride. From the hedge-lined lanes of North Lincolnshire, head east over the limestone cliffs of the Wolds and out to the coast to enjoy miles of rolling sand dunes, sweeping golden beaches, and bewitching marshes.
South Lincolnshire is blessed with some of the finest stately homes in the country, each one totally unique and set in their own picture-perfect gardens. That’s what inspired us to create this tranquil and leisurely holiday which allows you to explore the very best estates this county has to offer.
