Cycling UK has said organised sports can restart; they will not be subject to the rule-of-six gathering limit, but should be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies. Sport England has subsequently published guidance confirming that organised sport and activity includes group cycle rides, so group rides of more than six are allowed under the organised-sport and activity exemption. We allow a maximum of 12 riders currently.

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 also arrange women-only rides also on some Saturdays.


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