On Saturday, April 8, cycling enthusiasts from the local area and further afield will be able to take part in a non-competitive ‘Sportive’, which will be based around the London Road Pavilion, Louth, looping into the Wolds.

Just last month, Paralympian Dame Sarah Storey braved the weather to take the ‘Tour of the Wolds’ route ahead of the competitive race.

Dame Sarah said: “It’s a great, great place to start the national women’s road series and a return to Lincolnshire for us.”

“It’s fantastic and we’re looking forward to seeing what the route has to bring”.
