Road ride starting from East Markham, following quiet country roads to the Windmill at North Leverton continuing to Sturton le Steeple, seeking out the River Trent at Laneham and then back through East Drayton and on to the Windmill at Tuxford. This route has rolling hills and steady drags in places, but nothing too dreadful. No-one is ever left behind, so don't be put off joining us, we are all about enjoyment, not speed.

Road ride starting from East Markham, following quiet country roads to the Windmill at North Leverton (sells flour/oats souvenirs) continuing to Sturton le Steeple for a café/toilet stop at Reindeer Inn, carrying on to the Windmill at Tuxford (sells wide variety of products made at the windmill and is a café) - if you prefer to leave the café stop to the end, we can eat here instead.

This is a road ride, please only come along if you are confident at riding on roads, however, some of these roads are quiet. A road bike or a hybrid bike (with road tyres) is recommended for this ride, a mountain bike wouldn't be suitable.

Reindeer Inn at Sturton le Steeple - sells tea, coffee, snacks - approx. 10 miles in or The Windmill at Tuxford, but this is at the very end of the ride Please bring money/card with you to purchase drinks/snacks

Please wear comfortable clothing suited to the weather. It is recommended that you carry spare inner tubes, puncture repair kit and a multi tool, just in case you have any mechanical issues. Please check before the ride, that your bike is in a road worthy condition. It’s a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack if you think your energy levels may need topping up along the way. Please bring some money if you want to buy refreshments/cake at the café stop. Wearing a helmet is highly recommended, though not essential.

We never leave anyone behind
