The Saturday social club ride varies throughout the year, for more information please check our WhatsApp group for details. The social ride is a more relaxed pace of usually 14/16 mph average covering 40ish miles with a café stop. Shorter rides are arranged when younger riders are out.

Social rides are only as fast as the slowest rider.  From January 2023 riders will need to be at least a social ride member(£5) to cover insurance.

The Sunday rides are approximately 50 miles with an average speed of 17-18mph. The route is decided and planned by the Club Captain and usually includes a café stop (unless the weather is particularly bad.)

Picks Barn Saturday Feb 3rd

On Sunday the 16 July the club had a day on the Recreation Ground as part of the Bourne Lions Fun Day. The day was going well until the heavens opened and a thunder storm deluged the event. As part of the day anyone could try riding Keith's small penny farthing or try out on the Wattbike. 

Saturday morning 24 intrepid riders set off for the Longest Day Charity Ride in aid of prostate cancer and what a great day of cycling it was. Riders could do as many miles during the day as they wanted to. By the end of the day 5 riders had completed 150 miles and 6 riders had completed 100 miles. Congratulations to everyone that took part on Saturday we smashed our target of £250, the total amount raised so far is £625 plus gift aid.

With the weather still from the NE and E the ride rode over to Silverwood cafe at Long Sutton. A total of 53 miles.

Mablethorpe fish and chip ride 2023

On the May Bank Holiday Sunday seven riders set out from the Bourne Leisure Centre to Mablethorpe for fish and chips. The weather was cool to start with a cool North Easterly breeze. The ride set out at a good pace reaching our first cafe stop at Woodhall Spa at 17mph, with everyone doing a turn on the front. 

As we arrived and parked up a voice shouted Stuart, Chris Bettinson was there from Spalding CC but on his Motor bike for breakfast with a group. Our broom wagon had already arrived ready to replenished our water bottles ready for the effort that was before us across the Wolds. With some steady climbs we reached Mablethorpe, The chip shop that we had planned to stop at was heaving so we looked for another and eventually stopped at the Queens way. The food was good and reasonably priced. After eating our food we mad our way back to the car for fresh water and cookies to boost the journey back. The wind gods were in our favour with a tail wind for most of the ride back. The weather turned very dull a tad cooler. Making our way to Skinners ice cream shop in Fishtoft we were well ready for our well deserved ice cream. Barb’s and Mary were there again to refresh the water and supply us with cookies and protein bars.  After leaving Bourne at 0800 we arrived back in Bourne at 1820.

After checking Strava  it gave us all a top ten on a segment of 13.3 miles from Sutton on Sea called chain tight. On reflection everyone enjoyed their day out, so looking forward to the longest day on the 1st of July and another fish and chip ride in September to Hunstanton.
