Start Locations
Out of area starts:

For any ride starting out of area please confirm with the ride leader prior to the ride - this ensures that changes in plans due to illness/bad weather/lack of numbers etc can be passed on.

Welcome to the Ride Locations page!

The majority of rides that are led by the group will leave from either Stevenage or Hitchin. There are two "meeting" points in Stevenage which are Costello's cafe at Fairlands Valley Park in the new town and the Bowling Green in Stevenage Old Town. Our start location in Hitchin is the Three Moorhens Pub which is located on the corner of the roundabout on the A602 as you turn off to travel into Hitchin towards asda and the market area. If you need more help working out where the main "meeting" points are, please check the maps below.

Sometimes we advertise rides that leave from outside of the area we cover. Some of these are normal rides and some are Audax events that our riders normally take part in and we have therefore included some of these out of area start locations on this page to help make getting to them easier.

Costello's - Fairlands Valley Park
