Heading East – Train Assisted

East is Easy. There is one regular train route heading directly East, going to Worksop, Gainsborough and Lincoln and some smaller stations.

xx.44 Lincoln. Northern service normally 2-car trains. 2 bikes per train, not reservable and as the trains are often busy it is wise to assume that you won’t get a third bike on, although the guards will normally accommodate you if they can.

Note that the first service on this route on a Sunday leaves at 13:42, express to Worksop. The first stopping train is 13:37. We have been working on this for some years and it looks as though this situation will end when the new franchises start in 2017.

On Saturdays only, there is  a train that goes to nice places like Barnetby- 12:03 & 16:01 from Sheffield, 15:20 & 18:32 from Cleethorpes. Perfect for cycling the Lincolnshire Wolds although it’s a bit of a late start – could be handy for getting back though.
