South Herts Cyclists

Join us for sociable cycle rides on quiet lanes in South Hertfordshire.

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 activity that should remain accessible and available to all.

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 Hertfordshire residents and people from north London. Please contact our secretary for more information.
