Louth Area Rides

Sunday Rides
Our rides usually start from the Meridian Leisure Centre in Louth at 9.30 am from March through to October and at 10.00 am from November through to March (following the changing of the clocks). You are welcome to just ride to the cafe stop and return home or join us at the cafe stop and ride on with us. Through the winter months we usually only ride to a cafe stop but may decide to ride on further to another cafe or public house.
