This is a very easy-going ride, for those who are new to cycling, wanting a relaxing weekend ride with their children or just returning to cycling. We will ride at the pace that is best suited to everyone in the group, usually between 5-7 mph. As leaders we will ensure that no one is left behind, so that all the group can have an enjoyable ride.
We will be riding approximately 6 miles on the traffic free cycle track, called ‘The Nickey Line, heading towards Redbourn, to the Millennium Picnic ground. The Nickey Line is a disused railway line that is now accessible for cycling and walking. This beautiful, shady track has been unspoilt with tarmac so can be a little bumpy and muddy in places. However it is a perfect riding area for anyone wanting to get back into riding with the support of a small group.
We will be returning to the Dacorum cycle hub for cake/coffee and a chat.
Please remember to bring,
Two spare inner tubes for your bike, even if you do not know how to change them, someone in the group will, as well as the appropriate tools (tyre levers)
A waterbottle with a drink in, riding can be very thirsty work.
Cycle helmet, for your own safety.
Appropriate clothing for the weather
Money for a drink and cake at our cake stop
