|Most of the route follows the River Witham, Water Rail Way. It is well sign posted and most of the route on traffic free cycle paths. There are a couple of sections where it is necessary to use roads.

|The wife and myself did this September 2013 Lincoln - Boston overnight - Lincoln.What a great ride,just about tarmac all the way except for "Summer route" at Bardney which takes you down a track of Broken glass shards???? so suggest you take the little longer "Winter route" about a mile more on B road. |

|I did this route as part of a hundred mile circuit to Lincoln and back in mid June. |
There were virtually no other people on the paths, a steady 15mph on a road bike was easily achieved and it was a thoroughly pleasant way to travel - and no traffic for 90% of the route too.
Very nice - I'd highly recommend it but it's not a racing circuit as there are walkers etc - but you can see for miles so it's very safe.
It's also very flat so riders of any ability can ride decent distances.
