Happy New Year! Some good news first - a new cycle route, see below.
We have two file attachments at the end of this e-mail - a Punch cartoon and the latest update regarding the redevelopment at St Albans City station. And there is quite a lot of news in the other sections.
Harper Lane, north of Radlett, is a section of road that few cyclists would wish to use due to the frequent passage of juggernauts, but an alternative route is the cycle path through the new housing development on the former Harperbury Hospital, which is now open. This makes a good traffic-free route from Salisbury Hall through Old Parkbury and on to Frogmore. However, beware of cars parked on the cycle path on the section alongside the B556, Harper Lane.
NEW!!STACC cycle rides - first one is on Sunday 8th December.
Graham Trent will be leading a joint ride with SPOKES (the Watford-based cycle campaign) from St Albans Abbey Station on Sunday 8th December 2019 starting @ 9:30. The ride will go through Gorhambury then quiet lanes to Flamstead to pick up NCN 6 to return via Harpenden. Total distance is about 24 Miles. The ride will be medium pace (9 to 11 mph) and is suitable for any bike. There are no planned café stops, however we could visit the Inn on the Parkor Westminster Lodge café at the end of the ride.
If you would like to join the ride please email: firstname.lastname@example.org including a mobile number in case we need to contact you on the day.
