YHA Trip to Bourne, Lincs

YHA Thurlby,    Bourne, Lincolnshire, PE10 0EE

YHA Thurlby is a 15th century former village forge with a lovely lawned garden and orchard. It is located in a peaceful spot in the centre of an unspoilt Lincolnshire village. The homely former forge is full of character and has both Victorian and Georgian additions to the building – perfect for history buffs!

The Fens are natural cycling country and Rutland Water, an important area for bird life, offers a great choice of watersports and walks – perfect for activity breaks and walking and cycling holidays.

We have the luxury of a one night exclusive hire of the hostel, which will cost only £20 each. As the hostel is self catering, our own Jamie Oliver will be preparing the breakfast, with help needed. This will include cereal, toast, jam, marmalade, beans, croissant, choc au pain with afternoon cake and beverages on arrival.

A table is booked at the local inn; the Horseshoe for the Saturday night feast. Pay for this on the night. I will send
out the menu for you to choose from, but they do have a website ( for you to peruse now, if you wish to.

Oh, we have to bike there from the clubroom at 10 am on the Saturday. It is about 60 miles, through lovely countryside and in areas we don’t often venture through. Cafe stops essential, speeding not allowed. Mark and Lesley have once again kindly offered to take our bags…keep ’em light!

Closing date for a place on this fab trip : 20th January 2017 latest. But likely to be full well before this though!

Paid up CWCC members only…subs are due now!

I already have 13 definites, so hurry if you want to go..

    To secure your place, please let Greg Hodges know and transfer £18 (£13 for under 18) to the club’s bank account, ref “track”. (Message me if you need the bank details) If you need to hire a bike, 🚴🏻‍♂️ please let Greg know, adding £13.80 to your payment. Payment by 2nd March latest please.

    You’ll need Look Keo shoe plates for the hire bike. Shoes can be hired if needed.

    This is quite an investment for the club to hire the track, so your support for this event would be appreciated.
