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. Rides start variously at St Albans, Hatfield, Harpenden and Welwyn / Potters Heath 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. Please take a look at About Our Rides for information on typical ride distance and pace.

In addition to the scheduled Tuesday rides, many of our members get together to ride on other days. The Extra Mile is ride group goes out on a Friday, weather and volunteers permitting with rides organised close to the time via Social media. If you would like to join one of their rides, please speak to Deb Kirby (see contact details for The Extra Mile below).

We also enjoy cycling abroad, e.g., Majorca and one to France.
