Starting from - We will meet in the car park of Sandridge Village Hall. If the car park is full there is parking on residential roads nearby. There are toilets in the carpark. AL4 9DA
This Graceful Greens & Mellow Yellows - Harpenden & St Albans ride is open for anyone to join
This ride is aimed at anyone who is keen to dust off their bike and get cycling but would like to gain confidence in a group setting
We will meander around the beautiful country lanes from Sandridge, skirting Heartwood Forest and heading towards Nomansland, stopping for a drink and a chat en route.
If the Elephant and Castle is open for a coffee we will stop there. If not we will stop on the grass at Nomansland
Rides are a little different to pre covid. We will be cycling in smaller groups (max 6 including leaders) and will ride so that we are maintaining appropriate physical distancing. (2m in single file or 1m+ if doubled up) You will need to bring 2 spare inner tubes and any equipment you would need to change them (pump; tyre levers). In order to maintain social distancing we are not able to help out with any mechanical problems at the moment or share equipment so please ensure your bike is in good working order, and that you have a contact number for someone (or taxi) who can pick you up if you have a mechanical problem that you are unable to deal with. We won’t abandon you but our ability to help is limited. Helmets are compulsory on this ride and you also must carry a mask (you do not need to wear it whilst cycling but may need it for the coffee stop or if you require first aid assistance). Please also bring a small bottle of sanitiser for personal use, and of course water. Apologies for this long list of rules, but it is really important to us to keep both riders and leaders safe and once the logistics are out of the way we can get on and enjoy the ride in the knowledge that we are doing it as safely as we possibly can!
We especially welcome newbies!
