This 'Steady Plus' route is mainly along quiet, picturesque country lanes, with a few busier ones. This will be a brilliant ride for you if you want to increase your distance and take on some rolling hills in a relaxed, supportive group. The ride will aim for an average 8-10 mph over the route, to enable more people to take it on, by taking the pace pressure off.

This route takes us out from DCH towards Markyate via Cupid Greens Lane through the lovely undulating lanes of Puddephats and picturesque Buckwood Lane and gliding onto the ridge of the historical Downs from Isle of White Lane. After a comfort break in the visitors centre we return to the Hub on a straight route through Studham and the cycling Mecca that is Gaddesden Row and Lane.

Please check the weather forecast and wear appropriate clothing for the conditions. If you have a small rucksack so you can take layers off or put on as needed. Also bring some money for our stopping point if you would like to buy a drink, snack or light lunch.

Your bike should be in good working order for this ride, e.g. both brakes working & tyres pumped to pressure – though we can help you get your tyres to the correct pressure if you arrive 15 minutes before the ride start.

Please bring a couple of spare inner tubes – as if you have a puncture, changing the inner tube is the quickest way to fix it.

Should you need to buy a spare inner tube, Dacorum Cycle Hub sell recycled ones at 50p (patched); £1 (unpatched); & from £4 new. We are Not-for-Profit, do free bike assessments and will give you an honest price if your bike needs servicing.
