Seven of us attended this ride and we set off down the Alban Way. I chose to go through the retail park and head up Wilshire Avenue, navigating Watling Street to head towards Watford Road. Here we did some jiggery pokery as we had to get past some gates and onto the path that skirts Greenwood Park and leads to Tippendell lane. This is a pleasant relaxing route and as we made our way over a bridge we bumped into a local rider (Tom Spavin I think) and had a quick chat.
After tea we made mincemeat of Rectory Lane; this a nice winding/undulating affair of a road that connects to the B556 and once there we set into the quickest part of the ride clocking a mind boggling 36 mph for at least a second. We zoomed into London Colney only to be stopped by traffic lights (4 way this time).
A lovely sunny, if windy morning’s ride.
