In contrast to the short easy ride in May (let’s call that a 1-star ride) this month we move up a notch to a ‘2-star ride’. Longer distance and a little brisker in pace. To allow enough time there will be one start point at The Spires in High Barnet at 10am. The route will go via Bricket Wood and the Gorhambury Estate to lunch at the leisure centre cafe in St Albans park. Distance to lunch will be around 20 miles – there will be a brief ‘comfort stop’ but no coffee! Bring a snack if needed.
There will be an additional, more leisurely ride to Gorhambury and the same lunch stop led by Kathryn, which will also start at 10am from the Spires. Do note this will be only slightly shorter distance than the faster ride so bring a snack if needed.
The route has off-road sections which are suitable for all bikes except road with skinny tyres as there is some gravel. A tea stop is planned at the White Hart in South Mimms.
Meet: 10.00am outside Waitrose, The Spires, Barnet – by the bandstand (NO Tally Ho pick up).
