Starting point

WD18 9QD

Starting from Watford Cycle Hub, this Steady Plus route takes in quiet cycle paths and country lanes to Battlers Green Farm. Here we take a break at the farm shop and tea room. This route has a hill climb up to the farm along Common Lane so is a good ride for anyone who wants a route which is mainly flat, with a little hill practice. There ride route has on and off road sections to ride a mainly traffic-free route, with a little road practice in the safety of a group. As a Steady Plus category ride, the aim is to help everyone round the route without pace pressure, the pace average over the route will be around 8-10 mph.

The section up towards Wall Hall can get a bit muddy and there's a few potholes. This is a good route for hybrid riders and the mountain bikers will get round just fine too.

Please bring two spare inner tubes in case of punctures - as changing an inner tube is faster than fixing a puncture. Watford Cycle Hub sell inner tubes from £4 new should you need to purchase one.

Please check your bike is in good working order before the ride - especially that your brakes are working & your tyres are pumped. You can also come along early before the ride to use our track pump, or we can help get your tyres to the correct pressure for you pre-ride. :)

If your bike might need a little more TLC or hasn't been ridden for a while, you can always bring it in for a free assessment; we're Not-For-Profit and promise to give you an honest price if your bike needs fixing, fine tuning or a full service.
