St Albans

  • We ride on: Tuesdays

Welcome to the St Albans Section of the Forty Plus Cycling Club

We are one of the larger sections in the club with over 100 members in St Albans and the surrounding area, including Harpenden, Hatfield, Welwyn, and parts of N London. We have an active programme of formal Tuesday rises, informal rides, trips away and social events. We are a social cycling club and most rides incorporate one or more cafe or pub stops providing a chance to catch-up with old friends and make new ones.

Prospective members and guests are welcome to join us for a few rides – please contact Martin or one of the ride organisers.

Our Rides

On a typical Tuesday, we have five different rides allowing members to choose a ride to suit their ability and inclination. The start point for these rides rotates between St Albans, Hatfield, and Harpenden with occasional car-assist rides to explore further afield. Tuesday rides normally start with coffee, followed by a ride to lunch (less than 10 to over 20 miles depending on the group), and then a ride back home – typically we leave the lunch spot in groups according to home destination.

In addition to the scheduled Tuesday rides, many of our members get together to ride on other days. Many of these informal rides are organised at short notice via social media – speak to your ride organiser if you would like to be added to one of these groups.

Some of our keener riders routinely post to Strava and although we are a social cycling club, competition around the leader board has at times been stiff with even the odd whiff of underhand tactics being used to catch the competition napping on a Sunday evening.

We also enjoy cycling abroad and in 2019 there were two different trips to Majorca and one to France.
