Starting from Watford Cycle Hub, enjoy a lovely Sunday morning ride along tranquil, idyllic country lanes, including a section called "Under the Heavens" by locals. The route takes us through attractive farm land and across two village greens. There are a number of rolling hills but the scenery is well worth the effort! :)
This is a Steady Plus Route, ie. the hills are 'rolling' but there are no whoppers! There'll be a couple of slightly busier sections on the Sarratt Road. This ride will be paced to average 8-10 miles mph over the route. This is a perfect 'step up' ride for everyone who wants to get out into the countryside, but does not want to be at a push on pace. We hope to make it a very relaxed & enjoyable ride for everyone. :)
Our cafe stop will be at the Mediterranean Nursery, a little Eden, which is a joy to discover! :)
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 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. 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. :)
We are Not-For-Profit, do free bike assessments and should your bike need a tune up or a full service, we'll give you an honest price.
We look forward to riding with you. :)
