Easy Cycle Rides with Central London CTC

The Central London CTC will be covering our area pretty thoroughly during April:
Sunday 15 - ride from St Albans Thameslink (meet at Platfrom 4 exit on Ridgmont Road) 1003h;
Sunday 22 - ride from Elstree & Borehamwood station, 0954h;
Sunday 29 - ride from St Albans Thameslink, heading towards Ashridge, 1003h.

The rides are all what the Central London CTC grade as 1* rides (out of a possible 4), so fairly gentle pace expect to cover 25 to 30 miles in the course of the day, returning to the starting station typically between 1700 and 1800h - probably nearer the latter now that we are in BST. The start times listed above are when the train that the Londoners will be using to reach our manor is due to arrive at the start station.

The ride on the 15th is led by me, and I haven't entirely planned where I will go, currently considering Redbourn. It will be suitable (subject to weather conditions) for children on seats / trailers / able to ride on main roads and for the distance. (no, we won't be seeking out main roads, but short stretches may be unavoidable). It is a picnic ride, so bring own grub. The others will stop at a pub for lunch. On all rides the leaders try and have a morning or afternoon tea stop as well at a cafe, church or garden centre.

The ride on the 22 is listed as heading for St Albans for lunch, so could be suitable as a morning only ride for us locals.

Full details and leader contacts and also background information can be found on the Central London CTC website: www.centrallondonctc.org.uk

You do not have to be a CTC member to go on these rides.
