Starting point


Breeze Through Winter is back - sign up for 4 rides before the end of February to bag some goodies !

This route takes us on mainly quiet roads and cycle paths towards Hampstead Heath and up a few hills. This is suitable for riders that are comfortable with being able to ride 8-10 miles without a break and want to take the next step in improving fitness and endurance. There are a few places where we will be on main roads. Although mostly on firm roads, they can be wet and muddy and the winter weather can be changeable so it is advised not to have thin road tyres.

The routes takes us along the Dollis Brook cycle path to West Finchley where we'll take Long Lane, under the North Circular into the quiet roads of Hampstead Garden Suburb. We now start to benefit from the open spaces of Hampstead Heath as we ride up windy Wildwood Road to the top and enter Golders Hill Park. There we can admire the Pergola and have a quick stop at the cafe/toilets if needed. There is a short walk along North End Way and then cycle paths along Spaniards Road to the beautiful Kenwood House. We can admire the views and stop for a hot drink and cake in the attractive cafe and even browse in the bookshop and giftshop. We then wind back down Winnington Road and admire the houses, back through Hampstead Garden Suburb and then the final push uphill to West Finchley, before arriving back at the Spires.

Please wrap up warm with wet weather gear and wear a helmet and gloves, Don't forget some money for the cafe and giftshop. We will go at a steady pace, enjoying the sights and never leave anyone behind!
