A lovely ride starting at Watford Cycle Hub and heading out on the Ebury Way cycle path. We pass through a tree lined route adjacent to Croxley Moor, a 14th century barn and cross over the Grand Union Canal and Rivers Gade, Colne and Chess. We ride through Rickmansworth Aquadrome whose lakes are the source of the sand and gravel to build the original Wembley Stadium. We cross the canal at our destination, Black Jacks Mill. There was a mill on this site recorded in the Doomsday book.
New riders are always welcome and children too - provided a caring, supportive adult is riding with them. :)
Please bring a spare inner tube in case of a puncture - as changing an inner tube is faster than getting out the rubber glue. The Ride Leaders will happily help if anyone in the group has a puncture on the day. Watford Cycle Hub sell inner tubes from £4 new, or recycled ones for 50p patched, £1 with no patches, should you need to purchase one.
Please check your bike is in good working order before the ride - especially that your brakes are working & your tyres are pumped.
If your bike might need a little more TLC or hasn't been ridden for a while, you can always bring it in for a free assessment; we're a Not-For-Profit, Community Enterprise and promise to give you an honest price if your bike needs fixing, fine tuning or a full service. :)
