Next rides and events


Cycling UK has advised that groups activities must cease until restrictions are lifted. Unfortunately all of our open group rides are cancelled in line with this advice. Under the current rules only rides with one or two participants are allowed. Members can utilize our whatsapp group to find riding partners if they wish.

If you are a current member of Cycling UK, or think you would like to join, you can ask to be added to our Whatsapp group by emailing the Rides Secretary at She is also able to give advice on obtaining and using the app if you do not already have it.

Current guidance does recommend taking exercise, so make your own common sense and caring decisions about continuing to get out on your bike, taking precautions to minimise risk of catching or spreading the virus.

Weekend Ride Reports

Are in our blog.

We are a part of Cycling UK (the CTC or CUK) - the cyclists' champion. Since 1878 we have championed bicycle touring and leisure cycling - active travel that should remain accessible and available to all. You can try a cycle ride or two with us before joining up.

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.

What do we do?

We are a non-competitive cycling club with weekly rides on Sundays and Wednesday evenings. We lead shorter/easier fun rides on some Saturday mornings, with women-only rides also on some Saturdays.


You can try a few rides before joining. See our Frequently asked questions page for guidance on riding with us.
