This is a more challenging ride with some serious climbs between Pinner and Watford. There is a bit of traffic, so it isn't a beginner ride - you need to be reasonably fit. We'll cross Northwood to Rickmansworth, joining the tranquil Ebury Way, a disused railway line with lakes on each side. It could be muddy after rain, so road bikes are unsuitable. This path takes us to the edge of Watford and Cassiobury Park, where we join the cycle path in to the library. Watford Mencap's Cafe in the Library is a training project for people with a learning disability; the drinks and cakes are great, as well as the welcome. If you don't fancy the climbs on the return you can take the train back from Watford, but otherwise we'll descend the High Street and cycle back through South Oxhey, passing an unusual chapel in the middle of the housing estate. There's a long climb up Oxhey Drive before a joyous descent from Pinner Hill into Pinner.
