About us

Welcome to Rasen Riders cycling club. Being located on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, classed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we can boast some of the quietest back roads and beauty trails the county has to offer.

Rasen Riders was set up to invite local cyclists to share their knowledge of the best routes and trails in the Market Rasen area. Whether you enjoy road rides or mountain biking, it doesn't matter as we alternate the rides week on week, so get in touch and get on board. Don't worry about thinking you’re not Bradley Wiggins either because as long as you are a competent rider our Sunday rides are all about the fun with a ‘no one gets left behind’ policy. However we do mid week training rides as well.


For further updates on up and coming rides, get yourself on our mailing list by emailing rasenriders@mail.com and we’ll add you to the list




Official Club

Rasen Riders is affiliated to British Cycling who is the governing body for our sport. Having affiliation means the club is recognised nationally, giving club members certain advantages like gaining national points if you choose to race at a british cycling event. The club also gets public liability insurance for those unforeseen moments. However, our insurance doesn’t cover the rider so we always recommend that you obtain your own personal sports insurance.

Etiquette on Club rides

Just like any other club we insist that all riders respect the Highway Code and other club members. Click here for our constitution and stay safe and happy out there on your machines.



Try before you buy

Try Before You Buy: We want to promote the sport of cycling so we offer a 'three rides’ policy with us to see if the club or even cycling is for you. So come along to one of our 'Big Easy’ Sunday rides on either a mountain bike or road ride. Sunday mileage for a road ride is between 20-40miles, usually with a coffee stop and the MTB rides usually cover 15miles. We also promote training and healthy living with a wealth of knowledge in the club covering both. We do also host a Wednesday training ride which are what they say they are, training :-) .

Walesbymoor Trail Construction

Currently there is about 2 Kilometers complete of Walsebymoor trail, which puts the current progess at just over 50% complete. Below is the current progress map and we hope to be finished by the late summer.

Currently we hold trail builing 'dig days' every fortnight on Sunday days, and Wednesday evernings during the summer months. Why not come down and lend a hand completing dedicated XC MTB Trail. For more details on dig days contact us on the links above
