The Nickey Line is a disused railway line that has been converted to a walking and cycle path and offers a gentle, mostly flat and traffic-free ride through the countryside to the north of Hemel Hempstead. This route is ideal for families or anyone who is new to cycling and wants to explore their local area.
There is an option on the ride to extend the route to visit the Coffee and Cyclists refuge at ‘The Hub’ on Redbourn High Street or return to Dacorum Cycle Hub for refreshments.
Please wear layers to cope with the Winter temperatures and a rucksack so you can take off / put on layers as you need. Gloves are highly recommended.
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.
