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 an entirely 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... :)
Rachel Caterer will be your Ride Leader this week.
Your bike should be in good working order for the ride. If in doubt, bring it along to us in the days before to check & fix it for you. :) Please check your tyres are pumped to the correct pressure & brakes are working the day before the ride. You can use our track pump or we can pump your tyres to the correct pressure on the day if you arrive 15 minutes before the start. If there's an issue with your bike on the day of the ride, please arrive earlier than this so it can be checked over for you and sorted pre-ride. :)
Please bring a spare inner tube. Changing the inner tube is faster than fixing a puncture with a puncture repair kit. If you get a puncture on the ride - we will help you fix it! :) Watford Cycle Hub sell refurbished inner tubes for £1 (no patches); 50p (patched). New inner tubes are £4-6, should you need to buy one pre-ride...
Please also bring money for the cafe if you want to buy refreshments at this week's quirky cafe stop stop. :)
