Doddington Cycling Club Wellness Rides in collaboration with The New Normal Ride Club

Sometimes discussing your mental health and wellbeing can be easier with a stranger than a friend. The peer support model is known to help us have better conversations about our mental health and wellbeing.

We are offering our rides as an open, honest, and safe space for anyone to discuss their overall well-being and mental health.  Nobody should ever feel isolated, and there is always somebody who will relate to your story.

‘If there’s one, there’s two.’(TNN-The New Normal)

The rides will be led by Paul who is a trained mental health rider. If you want to talk to Paul before attending a ride, feel free to drop into the shop for an informal chat. He is in most days.  

There is no pressure to talk on the rides, if you simply want to ride with like-minded people that’s fine. Anything a person says during the rides is relevant, the only things we ask of you is to respect the privacy of the conversations on the ride and to treat others and yourselves with kindness.

All of the rides will be at a casual pace to be inclusive; you don’t need to be an avid bike rider to join.

Our first ride will be on Sunday 28 May to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Month and the national launch of Ride Club. After this they will be held monthly on the last Wednesday of the month.

Start from Giant Store Lincoln at Doddington Hall, rides are free and you don’t have to be a Doddington Cycling Club member.  

Dates: Sunday 28 May

Start time and finish time: 10.30am to 12.30pm

Meet at Giant Store Lincoln, Doddington Hall, Lincoln, LN6 4RU
