Enjoy a free, RAF-themed guided bike ride from Lincoln to Doddington Hall and back with Access Lincoln during the summer holidays, to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force.

The free rides taking place every Wednesday during the summer holidays follows an attractive, traffic-free route from Lincoln to Doddington Hall. The route takes you out along the Fossdyke Canal, then through fields and woods that once bordered RAF Skellingthorpe.

Once at Doddington Hall, there will be time for refreshments, a sweet treat or a light bite to eat before your return to the city.

Led by a Lincoln tour guide, the ride will feature interesting facts and RAF anecdotes giving a true insight into how the air force impacted Lincoln.

The free cycle ride is an ideal opportunity for you to spend time with your family and friends, see some of Lincoln's beautiful countryside, and get a little exercise. The ride departs from the Hirebike station by the Horse and Groom on Brayford Way.

Please bring your own bike and cycle helmet. Alternatively, you can rent a bike through the Hirebike service.
