Welcome to the St Albans section of the Forty Plus Cycling Club. This section hosts published rides on both Tuesday and Thursday each week.

Tuesday is our main cycling day where every week we offer no fewer than 5 different rides each of a different level of ambition.  These rides start variously from St Albans, Hatfield, Welwyn or Harpenden, so there's something to suit everyone here

Thursdays are more sociable than strenuous, and as such provide a useful opportunity for newcomers to meet us and find out what we have to offer. We meet from 11.00 a.m. at "The Green Man" in Sandridge for coffee, after which we then cycle no more than 10 miles to a local hostelry for lunch.

Reports from some of our rides:
  • 16-05-2017 Founders Day Ride This photo shows Terry Kent (3rd from right) with some of the 40 plus attendees from the St Albans and North Herts sections during their Founders Day ride to the Shutteworth Collection in Old Warden.  I was away and missed what I heard from several attendees was a great day for everyone - well done Terry!

  • 2017-04-23 Group photo in Cala Bona A great photo from Pat Kennedy at the start of the second week of the 40 Plus cycling holiday in Majorca.  This shows a group of 15 of the around 25 of our riders taking to the roads to Petra, Arta and Manacor in 2017 - some went for a week, some 10 days and some even for two weeks including Pat Kennedy and Mike Headland.  There were Pinarellos galore from Miguel at Sancho bikes and a good time was had by all - same time next year?

  • 2017-05-02 Lea Valley Inter Ride Tony O'Byrne led an excellent 23 mile ride to the Fish and Eels by the River Lea.  Tony has made this route a perennial favourite with both the Inters and A Riders.  This time we stopped to admire several of the sculptural installations on Tony's well researched route.  Charlie Lynn is seen here practising his new 'Angel of the North' pose.  Photo: Jane Sherry

  • 2017-04-23 Majorca - cycling from Cala Bona Adrian Winterbone leads a ride from Cala Bona towards Capdepera on a glorious summer day quite warm enough for shorts and short sleeves.  Members of the St Albans section were joined by members from North and East Herts for 6 wonderful days of cycling in the hills above Cala Bona.

  • 2017-04-18 Au Revoir Ant. Kevan Harrop, A Ride organiser, writes: Ant Stephenson, a regular A rider, is moving to Norwich and we will seriously miss him.  He is a strong, reliable rider and leader with a great sense of humour. Whenever there was a gap to be filled he was the first to step forward. We remember his unselfish act of curtailing his ride to accompany an injured rider on his way home - he is that sort of man. Good luck Ant in your future rides and new life.  And so say all of us!
