To help you pick the right ride for you we brand all our rides by a gorgeous colour so you know what you to expect in terms of your riding experience and this ride is a Mellow Yellow ride which means it’s for beginner riders, 10-15 miles, 7-8mph - Just to get you going on quieter roads .
We will ride out to Hatfield House and take in some lovely countryside in the area following an old railway link so there are no hills :)
This an approx route for the day but may differ slightly https://www.strava.com/routes/9149989
NO DROP POLICY: We ride at the pace of the slowest rider and always wait at the top of hills, so no one gets left behind.

WEATHER: We live in the UK and the weather can be changeable, if I feel it's raining too hard, too cold/miserable/icy/snowy/windy etc then I will cancel, for your safety as well as enjoyment of the ride. But bring thin layers and waterproof jackets as weather can change through out a ride and you may want that extra layer if we stop or have to change a puncture.
