CTC Peterborough is probably your nearest CTC group : http://www.ctcpeterborough.org.uk/

Sleaford Wheelers are an affiliated group : http://www.sleafordwheelers.co.uk/

Search here: http://www.ctc.org.uk/local-groups
Hand wash only. Do not iron.

The local everyday cycling group is Spalding Pedals, contact David on 01775 766145 or by email at davidjones2da@hotmail.com - I have no other info on them besides http://pedals.org.uk/east_midlands_cyclists_forum/ at the moment and I don't know if they also tour like we do. If you get in touch, please let them know KLWNBUG says hi from across the Nene. Actually, some people ride with both http://www.KLWNBUG.co.uk and groups in Lincolnshire, so asking on BUG's facebook group may reveal details of other groups?

The local racing club is Spalding Cycling Club, but they've recently deleted their website, so I don't know what's going on there. Some of the other contact info at https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/club/ ... ub_id=1660 may still be current.

As ever, search Ride Social, Streetlife, Facebook, BBC.co.uk/getinspired and Meetup if you haven't already. I think most groups advertise on some of those now?
MJR, mostly pedalling 3-speed roadsters. KL+West Norfolk BUG incl social easy rides http://www.klwnbug.co.uk

I ride with Peterborough CTC and live not far from Spalding. They are out midweek and each weekend plu the usual other shenanigans.

Come and try it.

Thanks - I might give it a go. Trouble is I'm not that fit at present - I used to tour all around Europe but not into racing - just want some company occasionally.
Have had no reply from Spalding group.

Gosh - at least you're still there Jac!
It's autumn in England with the trees turning golden. So we say leaves mean leaves.

Hi Horizon - yes I'm still plodding on - are you ok?
Sadly my husband died of prostate cancer last year hence the request for some company occasionally to cycle with
