Join me for a ride out from Dacorum to Stockwood Park (near Luton) for refreshment and return.
Make sure you bring a sturdy lock as bikes are not allowed inside the visitor centre.
Not suitable for road bikes with skinny tyres. Best suited to hybrids, MTB or gravel bikes.
Circular link - out using the Nicky Line and Upper Lea Valley Way (both amazing traffic free paths). A couple of miles on road before we enter Stockwood Park, where there is a cafe, plenty of outdoor space, a small exhibition and toilets.
We make our way back through Slip End, Markyate and Gaddesden Row on road, a few ups and downs through in. !
