This is an opportunity to meander along the Ebury Way & Grand Union Canal to one of the best independent, quirky coffee houses in the area.
At just under 10 miles, this route is a good ride if you what to extend your distance, while staying on-the-flat. It's a virtually traffic-free route, so is family friendly and a good route for adults who simply prefer to cycle traffic-free.
There is also car parking at Cafe Bean Here, so any member of your family, or a friend who does not cycle, can meet us down there, or the 'parent taxi service' can come so little legs only have to cycle one way if need be... :)
We will be riding back via the same route to Watford Cycle Hub which means you'll get to perfect using the 'bike slide' on the stairs both up & down from the canal...! :)
Nick Bury & Dennis Fitton are your Ride Leaders for this coming Sunday's afternoon ride.
Please bring two spare inner tubes in case of a puncture - as changing an inner tube is faster than getting out the rubber glue. The Ride Leaders can help if anyone in the group has a puncture on the day. Watford Cycle Hub sell inner tubes from £4 new, or second hand 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. You can also come along early before the ride to use our track pump, or we can help you get your tyres to the correct pressure pre-ride. :)
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. :)
