yes...Yes...YEs...YES....biking weather at last! 13 Celsius Saturday afternoon. 75 solo miles around the Lincolnshire Wolds but still no fish 'n' chips I'm afraid. I can however, put in a good word for The Dolphin in Sutton-on-Sea. Fish, chips and peas for two. Just £10.00 and they were pretty good too..but that was on Thursday and they were collected by car, not bike.

With a bit of luck will get out Sunday afternoon for a spell, too, but is really our Thursday night rides that get us to the chippie.

Oh, and don't forget, the Wolds Bikers next rideout is this Monday 15th April, leaving The Coach and Horses Billinghay LN4 4DD at 7.30 pm. If you are not a member, just turn up.. and bring your £10.00 annual subs with you.

Wolds Bikers is a friendly and welcoming Lincolnshire  motorcycling club. We like nothing more than to talk, ride and watch motorcycles. We cater for any size and make of bike. You don’t even need one! All we ask is a passion and interest for motorcycles.Wold Bikers has already raised over £14,000 for LIVES, the Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service  and the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance. Why not join and help raise even more?

Don't know if its good news or bad..but we're back! After a seemingly endless winter (and it's not over yet!), Alan, young Peter the Bandit and I managed a shakedown ride in the Wolds yesterday. I realise that three cups of hot chocolate at the Willingham Woods kiosk does not add to the nation's body of fish 'n' chip knowledge but it's the best you are going to get when its just 4 Celsius. But Shirley (it's an old joke!) it has to get warmer from now on so we can resume our quest. And what a quest it will be this year as I'll be reporting from the Black Forest in Germany (probably only finding Pork Knuckle and Sauerkraut shops) and will also be seeking out the best chippies between Dublin and Coleraine later in the year. 

On another front, tonight, 1st April sees the Wolds Bikers first Monday night ride out of the year. 7.30 pm at the Coach and Horses Billinghay 'twixt Tattershall and North Kyme, Lincs, for a short 30 mile season-starter. If you are a Wolds Bikes member, please check your subs payment . If you are not yet a Wolds Bikes member, you can join for just £10 a year. See
