We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

I walked this route south to north, from Skegness to Mablethorpe, in other to have the wind and sun behind me. (Old railway posters used to say 'Skegness is SO bracing' and that can be very true!) I walked from the railway station, then followed the coast from Skegness pier. The entire coast is signposted as the England Coast Path and it's been so well done that you can't get lost. Most of the way from Skegness to Chapel St Leonard is along hard concrete or tarmac promenade paths. This would be suitable for bikes, pushchairs and wheelchairs, except for a stretch in the middle that's covered in soft sand, and a stretch along a sandy beach where a golf course has to be avoided. After passing the North Sea Observatory on Chapel Point there's more sandy beach walking, then the route runs slightly inland through the Lincolnshire Coastal Country Park. This is entirely for walkers, not bikes, and only a few short paths are suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. These can be accessed from a handful of car parks. Notices encourage cycling from Hutoft all the way to Mablethorpe, following a broad promenade past Sandilands, Sutton-on-Sea and Trusthorpe. On reaching Mabelthorpe, follow High Street inland and turn left to reach the Co-op supermarket. A bus stop opposite has regular buses back to Skegness - Stagecoach number 59. The route makes good use of the coastal path and I don't think there's any way it could be improved, though if you like sand between your toes, then you're welcome to stay on the beach throughout. Take a packed lunch, or take a break at one of the coastal cafes, restaurants or bars that crop up at intervals.
