One of the benefits of joining Forty Plus cycle club is that you can go on any of the rides organised by any of the sections.

There is an opportunity to travel down by train to join the East Herts, or St Albans sections on a Tuesday, riding with them to lunch and then heading back to Letchworth.

We also support the Letchworth Arts & Leisure Group, (LALG) cycling group the “Garden City Wheelers” on the third Thursday of each month. This ride is aimed at beginners or cyclists who haven’t ridden for a while. Please see the LALG monthly newsletter or their website for further information or click Garden City Wheelers
