The Little Green Ride is something of an institution in North London. For many years a group of cyclists have met at Finsbury Park station on a Sunday morning to take a train out to the Hertfordshire countryside.
Once off the train, they meander through pleasant country lanes seeking out a pub for a long and leisurely lunch. When they are finally prised from the fireside, they wander back to the railway station at Stevenage (sometimes with a teastop interlude) to catch the train home.
The ride is usually around thirty miles, sometimes a bit less. There are some hills but we always wait at the top for everyone (it is a good excuse to look at the view). The only cost is a price of a train ticket and a pub lunch.
Nowadays the ride takes place on the third Sunday of every month.
The next rides will be on:
