The rides are open to all and we put an emphasis on fun and friendship. To join the programme you don't even need to worry about a bike as one of our officers can arrange for bike and helmet hire (if you contact them before the ride) so all you need to do is turn up at the meeting point ready to ride and meet new people.
The Dobbs Weir to Herford route takes in the most picturesque part of the Lee Valley. Starting at the Dobbs Weir we head out of the district towards the lovely town of Ware before continuing on to Hertford were we stop for a break, and then head back via Amwell Nature Reserve.
