This is a full day ride and a big adventure, heading out into the peaceful countryside near Biggleswade. This is a train-assisted ride, so to make it easier to get bikes and people on and off trains, we are making only a small number of places available from Ealing. However, if you want to make your own way to Sandy for the start of the ride and join us there, please get in touch.
From Ealing Town Hall, we will ride up to Wembley Park to take the Metropolitan line to King’s Cross. We will be catching a train at 10.46am to take us to the Bedfordshire village of Sandy, arriving at 11.33am. Return rail fare is £14.60.
Our ride is a 34 miles circuit, at a steady pace, ensuring that no one is left behind. Expect some rolling hills- steady and long rather than steep-, quiet country lanes, glorious views over the fields and woods, charming villages. We will pause for refreshments en route, with a choice of pubs and tearooms to sustain us, but bring a packed lunch as we won’t have time to wait for food to be served.
We will aim to catch the 4.46pm train from Sandy (trains are approx. 30 mins apart), returning to King’s Cross at 5.33pm. We will have a choice of routes back to Ealing, depending on riders’ preferences.
