RIDES FOR ALL | SPOKES SW HERTFORDSHIRE CYCLING GROUP
822 Miles of Local Cycling Routes – ranging from 4 to 46 miles in length
SPOKES South West Herts Cycling Group will, on 27 August as part of its 25th Anniversary celebrations, launch a new resource for cyclists of all abilities in SW Hertfordshire, SPOKES Rides For All – http://www.spokesgroup.org.uk/ridesforall/.
The objective is to make available rides that are family friendly, suitable for new cyclists as they build up confidence on longer rides and for experienced cyclists new to the area to show off the lovely countryside available to them. It builds upon two earlier books of rides that SPOKES has published. SPOKES Rides For All makes these earlier rides available in digital form as well as adding new routes.
However, it is more than a library of GPX files. As well as a downloadable GPX file for each ride, it is also possible to download instructions to guide those without a GPS device around the route. Each ride is accompanied by information about refreshments stops, toilets and points of interest. The rides range from 4 to 46 miles in length. Some are traffic free rides, other are all on road or may have up to 75% of the route off-road.
At the time of the launch there will be 53 routes offering 822 miles of cycling with more routes added more as part of this ongoing project.
