Ride Description: A ride visiting the plaques commemorating famous people who have lived in Finchley, Hampstead Garden Suburb and Hampstead.
Ride notes: Hampstead is hilly! So, if you have a choice of bikes, bring the one with the lowest gears. Also, due to the stop/start nature of the ride, there is little opportunity to build up body heat. So, if the ride is on a cold day, bring warm extra layers. There will be loo and refreshment stops at Golders Hill Park and South End Green. You can buy food and drink at either. If it is warm enough, you are welcome to bring a picnic and sit on the grass to eat it. If you arrive early, teas and coffees are available from a McDonalds by the start point.
