Sunday Road Rides
Join us for a road ride every Sunday. Distances between 25/45 miles (weather permitting) through some great scenery in Hertfordshire then head back to the shop for around lunchtime. We generally average around speeds of 15/17mph.
You will need to make sure that you have a fully road worthy bike, ideally you should bring with you a pump, puncture repair kit and spare inner tubes, and some money if we stop for a coffee. Please make sure that you wear adequate clothing, remember items like your helmet, gloves, a coat and overshoes if appropriate. Several thin layers usually prove most effective and allow easy adjustment.
We meet at the shop 07:55 for a 08:00 start (times may vary, please join the WhatsApp group to get up to date information)
We now have a introductory ride for those of you who aren’t sure if group rides a for you. First Sunday of every month the usual crowd head off as normal and loop back to the shop for about 10am to pick up anyone wishing to join. Pace is usually a bit slower and roughly a 20 miles circuit.
Tuesday Night Off Road Rides
Tuesday night is ride night! Come meet us down at the shop and join us for a woodland adventure. Typically out for a couple of hours sometimes less, average of around 10mph (in the winter months) Please note this is an off road ride therefore a basic level of skill will be required, if you’re unsure please don’t hesitate to ask.
You will need to make sure that you have a worthy machine and adequate safety gear. Among other things this includes a helmet and during the winter a decent set of lights!! Ideally you should bring with you a pump, puncture repair kit and spare inner tubes, and some money for hard earned refreshments..
Friday Morning Ladies Ride
All welcome, meeting at the shop 9.00am, quick coffee and chat before setting off at 9.30 on a leisurely ride though the local countryside. A stop half way at a local cafe is common and the pace is set by the slowest ride so nobody is left behind. The route is all on road, quite lanes mostly and varies in distance depending on enthusiasm and weather. Currently rides are between 15 and 20 miles but as popularity and fitness grows we anticipate different pace groups to form.
