Take a tour of scenic Lincolnshire on these new cycling holidays

Explore beautiful routes and stately homes

Cyclists will be able to take a dedicated holiday tour of the scenic Lincolnshire sights from this summer.

The new cycling holidays will launch in June, with travel giant TUI already booking hundreds of places.

Four dedicated routes will take people through the Lincolnshire Wolds, along the Coastal route as well as in and around the historic city of Lincoln.

There will be plenty of time to take on some new experiences, as well as some new places to eat and overnight accommodation.

Cycling England says the holidays are designed with every detail considered from the arrival through to pedalling and eating through picturesque landscapes.

The longest route, which is along the Lincolnshire coast, starts in Hull and finishes in Boston after a lengthy but leisurely 267 kilometres.

Belton House is part of the cycling route.

It’s not possible to book the holidays just yet, but a similar route in Yorkshire is billed at £535 per person over five nights.

“This is the first time that people can book a complete Lincolnshire cycling holiday online,” said Hayley Toyne from Visit Lincoln.

“Four new cycling routes have been created which include the most scenic parts of Lincolnshire, as well as overnight accommodation, places to eat and experiences along the way.

“The bid to secure funding was extremely competitive, but we submitted a joint proposal with Welcome To Yorkshire and secured over £1 million to develop bookable packages that would become sustainable.”
