Back again for a fifth fantastic time!

Cycle 60 or 25 miles through pretty villages and lush Spring countryside in Hertfordshire - a landscape of beautiful half-timbered cottages and colourful marketplaces. It’s a great way to get back to speed and welcome in the Spring!

This year we're also offering optional chip-timing on the 60 mile route. Results available on the day and online following the ride.
