Velos Rides for Sunday 13th May 2018

We have a few options for you to to choose from this Sunday.

Ride from Wheathampstead

A few weeks back, Dave Howe posted on Facebook about taking in some new routes by moving our start point. This generated some interest so this week we have that option for you.

This will be a 9am start and will cover 63 miles

The meeting point is a car park in Wheathampstead on East Lane, it’s behind a Miller and Carter restaurant, post code AL4 8BS

The start point is a 40 minute DRIVE from Pitstone and 19 miles by BIKE so we would suggest a 7.30am start for anyone cycling over and an 8am start by car to get them unloaded for 9. The car park has a height restriction so bikes will need to be unloaded from rooftops before parking cars. The car park is free.

We don’t propose any official stop along the route but there are some good cafes in Wheathampstead in people would like to stay for a drink after the ride, we like “loafing” which is a bakery with a coffee machine and seats outside that is very close to the car park. There is also a Tesco very close to the car park if anyone needs essentials post ride. If anyone needs a water top up we pass a Londis in Much Haddam after 42 miles.

If you want to share the driving, head on over to our Facebook group to discuss our options.

10am start, 35 miles

10am start, 25 miles

As always, please bring a copy of your chosen route with you.
