03.06.17 - Pedal Power Knight

This summer there are 37 of these Knights scattered around town, commemorating the 800th anniversary of the Battle of Lincoln and the sealing of the Charter of the Forest. Two years ago there was the Baron's Trail celebrating the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, and it was a huge success with tourists and locals alike, we are hoping that the Knights are just as popular. Each Knight is painted with a significant design, this one is dedicated to the cyclists that pedal up this steep cobbled hill every year in the Lincoln Cycle Grand Prix. My son Jack and I did the whole Knight's Trail yesterday afternoon in just under 3 hours, expect more photos soon!
