- Starting Point & Postcode
- Outside Watford Rugby Club Knutsford Playing Field Radlett Road WD24 4LL
- 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 20 mins cycling)
- Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

Challenging rides on the road for adults only
If you’ve been riding a road bike for a while, and perhaps been thinking about joining a cycling club, these rides – brand new for 2012 – are for you. The prospect of a speedy pace over twenty to fifty miles, and the strong likelihood of some hills thrown in along the way, means our Ride Strong Plus rides are not for the faint-hearted.
Taking off from Watford and heading north east this ride is the maximum distance for a "Strong" ride and it has some hilly sections. It keeps to quiet lanes where possible, some on traffic free cycleways passing through scenic countryside and woodlands. Although we are never far from the motorways it is surprising just how rural this ride is. There are also a couple of popular cafes on route in pleasant country surroundings - always a must for cyclists.
Public Car Park nearby, signposted on Radlett Road on the south side of the roundabout near the Club. You can exit the car park onto a shared cycleway going under the main link road to get to the start point. Please do not use the Rugby Club Parking or its entrance road
