Hertfordshire Greenways 100 - 18th September 2021
« on: 21 May, 2021, 08:37:06 pm »
My Hertfordshire Greenways 100km audax, on 18th September, is now open for business

https://audax.uk/event-details?eventId=8212

111km cycling event starting from Stevenage, Hertfordshire. Controls at Bovingdon and Stevenage., plus 4 information controls.

Another  fun editon to explore the traffic free greenways Ayot Greenway, Nickey Line, Alban Way, and Cole Green Way. This time you get to go round in a clockwise direction.

A delightful outing on the greenways of Hertfordshire. Tackles 45km of the old disused railways, combined with quiet lanes, cafe start / finish, a halfway cafe (or pub) and low minimum speed makes for a fun and different day out.

For more detail and photos see https://herts-audax.herokuapp.com/hertfordshire-greenways/

There will also be a Hertfordshire Greenways Lite 50km audax and Four Minute Mile 200km audax on same day, which should be open for business within the week.

Excellent. Enjoyed this last time. Shan't know for a bit whether I am free that weekend, so I'll have to hope that places are still available :thumbsup:

I’m assuming no limits on numbers at the moment.  Entries will remain open till week before. At which point I’ll order the brevet cards.

Have signed up, but quite new to distance cycling and slowly building up.

I'll probably be the last one back to the pub.

The last of the 100 riders has overlapped with the first of the 200 riders in previous years. It all works just dandy. The time limit for the 100 usually means if you use all the available time you’ll finish around sunset.

Access by train from Brighton via Kings Cross to Cambridge or Peterborough is also really easy.  Start is about 20 mins from railway station.

This is quite a fun ride. Done three previous  and thoroughly enjoyed each one. Entered again for this year.

20 minutes uphill that is. Not a massive hill, but good news at the end, when you can just freewheel back. Even better news, the station is on one of the few lines visited by this route that are still open ;D

It is uphill but a gentle 3% or so
