Starting point

WD24 4LL

Out with Peter via Croxley Green, Sarratt, Chipperfield, Abbotts Langley and Bedmond to St Albans Verulamium Park. Return via the Abbey Way. 1300 feet of climbing, includes a few challenging hills. Refreshment stop at Lazy Llama Cafe, Chiswell Green. Buy at cafe or bring your own refreshment for an outdoor refreshment stop, weather permitting. Final decision on the day but we may approach Verulamium Park via Gorhambury Estate which is expected to open by then but that would not be suitable for skinny tyres due to down hill poorly surfaced initial drive, circa 1/4 mile (walkable if preferred).

This socially distanced medium pace ride (9-11mph average) organised by SPOKES SW Herts Cycling Group. Non SPOKES Members welcome.

Covid Guidance must be followed at all times, refreshment breaks will be outdoor, socially distanced in groups no larger than 6 and are dependent upon weather and café availability.

All that you need so you are self-sufficient in repairing your bike, punctures etc. and do not need close distance contact or to share with the rest of the group. Use of a face covering is optional.
