Figure of eight ride to Gosmore, Hitchin - Hertfordshire

21 June 2016

Today our ride was also entered as part of the Letchworth Festival. The ride was a figure of eight, seven of us set off Mia, Sheila, Frank C, David W, Adrian, myself Stuart and Geoff as usual in the lead. We cycled via Willian, Great Wymondley, Little Almshoe, St Pauls Walden, Whitwell, then towards Lillie turning right at the Tea Green crossroads for Ley Green, Preston, Charton, Hitchin and finally Gosmore. We had lunch in the Bird in Hand. A nice lunch time was had before setting off again. We then skirted the south side of Hitchin and up to Great Wymondley, where David and Adrian left us. We then headed over to Graveley, going through the north part of Stevenage and Great Ashby before heading to Weston, Baldock and back home. The weather was fair before lunch, clouding over after lunch. Light winds throughout. Our total milage was somewhere in the region of 36 with and average of 12.5 per hour.
