Hatfield Sportive Ride: Sunday 29th April 2012
Join us as for a weekend or riding which will see knobbly tyred mountain bikers and slick road cyclists alike set off to roam the award winning Lee Valley Regional Park, branching into the lanes and countryside of East Hertfordshire.
We feel a bit chuffed with ourselves for coming us with some cleaver route designs that skip the dull urban bits and stick to mainly quiet rural roads! Heading North into the countryside of East Hertfordshire and looping out wide around Stevenage we get in some scenic miles that will see you set in to a steady cadence. For the finale, we head past Luton and back to the event center in time for a bowl of pasta and a chat with fellow riders.

FUn - 12 miles
