A mix of cycle paths and fairly quiet roads as we'll go out along The Ebury Way and Abbey Way through the Meriden to Garston Park before heading up High Elms lane and into the back of Leavesden Country Park. We'll then head along College Road, a short section on Tibbs Hill Road to Trowley Rise and along to Abbots Autumn Fest on School Mead. There will be time to buy refreshments and wander round the stalls before heading back to Watford Cycle Hub via South way and Gypsy Lane
