For cyclists from South Herts & North London. Join us for sociable cycle rides on quiet lanes in South Herts and beyond.
 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 part of Cycling UK (the CTC) - the cyclists' champion. Since 1878 we have championed a simple belief – that cycling is a wonderful gift that should remain accessible and available to all.

What do we do?  

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

For your first ride try a Saturday morning fun ride as these are about 20 miles with a break half way 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.

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.

We also have occasional car-assisted rides, weekends away and longer tours.
