Join us for sociable cycle rides on quiet lanes in South Herts.
 Please contact Carol Brazier for more information. 

Rides usually start in St Albans, Hatfield or Hertford. All starting points are near train stations and parking facilities and we have a mix of local residents and people from north London. We are a 'formal member group' of the CTC - the national organisation for cyclists – and one of four groups cycling in Hertfordshire.

South Herts CTC fixed-base summer trip now definite.
The fixed-base trip organised by Steve and Carol Brazier to Burton-on-Trent in Staffordshire based in the Burton Central Travelodge is definitely going ahead now.

There will be day rides from Saturday 6th June until Tuesday 9th June – four cycling days of about 60 miles.

We have enough people now booked into the hotel to make the trip viable, but still can still accept other people joining in.

Currently the room prices at the Travelodge for the four days are between £25 and £37 per night and there is a JD Wetherspoon pub and other pubs and restaurants nearby for us to use in the evening. The Travelodge has a bar café for breakfast. We will expect everyone to book their own rooms.

Please contact us at carolbrazier99@gmail.com or phone 01727 867575 or 07711954753 if you want to join us.

Summer Hoiday in Niort, France now definite.

Anne can now confirm that the holiday to Niort, 6 to 14 June 2015 will go ahead.  Details and booking form.

What do we do? 

We are a leisure cycling club with weekly rides on Sundays and Wednesday evenings. Shorter/easier rides are run on some Saturday mornings.

Sunday rides have a morning coffee break, lunch stop and (summertime only) a tea break in the afternoon.  For a shorter ride, some people cycle back from coffee or lunch most Sundays; others stay out all day.  As our weekend ride reports
 show, a Sunday ride to coffee and back could be 30 miles.  In the summer months a full Sunday ride could be over 60 miles. In the winter, rides are shorter (about 40 miles) and the lunch stop nearer to the start so we can often get back before dark.  

Our popular midweek rides start from St Albans on Wednesday evenings and aim for an energetic 90 minute ride to a local pub.

For your first ride try a Saturday Saunter morning ride as these are no more than 20 miles and go at a speed that suits everyone. Or, if you can average 12 mph, start with a Sunday ride to elevenses and back.

We also run 5 Miles to Fabulous rides especially for women and have occasional car-assisted rides, weekends away and longer tours .
