I recently wrote about the delights of the Water Rail Way, the public foot / cycle path which passes through Kirsktead, near Woodhall Spa, connecting Boston and Lincoln, running mostly along the bed of the old railway line alongside the River Witham.
In a few weeks time, the Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Brent Charlesworth will cycle the 33-mile journey along the Water Railway, from Boston Guildhall to Lincoln Guildhall, as the last fundraising exercise of his mayoral year.
The cost to join in the ride is £5 for adults and £2.50 for children, and there’s a goodie bag and a reception at Lincoln Guildhall with the civic party at the end of the ride. For more information or to book tickets, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 01522 873507.
Councillor Charlesworth will set out from Boston Guildhall at 11am on Sunday, May 3. You can start with him, or you can join the ride anywhere along the route which passes through Coningsby, Woodhall Spa (Kirkstead), Bardney, Fiskerton and Washingborough.
Cllr. Charlesworth welcomes fellow cyclists: “Please join in the ride if you can. It should be a really good day out and will help to raise much-needed funds for two charities that do so much fantastic work, Development Plus and Dial-a-ride. It would be great to be accompanied by as many riders as possible on the route, even if it’s joining in along the way. The more the merrier! We’re hoping for some beautiful weather and when we get to the Stonebow we can celebrate our achievements with food and drink with the civic party.”
