Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
3 hours 0 mins  (2 hours 30 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in Hemel Hempstead

Join us for the Nickey Line pootle! It’s traffic free, approximately 12 - 18 miles long and fairly flat (we can decide on the day how far we go).  This ride is perfect for beginners and anyone who hasn’t been out on their bikes for a while!

The Nickey line is a former railway line (the Harpenden to Hemel Hempstead Railway) and links Harpenden, Redbourn and Hemel Hempstead.

We’ll be stopping for a well deserved tea and cafe mid way so please bring some money.  You might also like to bring a drink for the journey and please dress appropriately for the weather.

Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then. 

We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.

Everyone’s welcome - look forward to seeing you there!

    Carol Macdonald I started cycling 3 years ago when I started doing Triathlons. I went from riding a heavy old mountain bike to riding a light road bike in a year. If I can do it anyone can. Love being out on the bike but understand how scary it can feel.
