*Virtual* Rides around Stevenage and Surrounds

One of our ride leaders (Tina Walker) has been riding (and making videos) of some easy rides around Stevenage and the surrounding villages.

These are available from YouTube (Search for TinaCyclist). More routes are being added every week. The quality of the video is not brilliant since the camera is mounted on the cycle. There is a commentary alongside recorded while cycling so includes heavy breathing going uphill and wind/road noise too.

Most of the routes are taken from the Stevenage Cycling Festival Cycle Routes Map which is available on our website on the maps page (look under Links/Maps).

Here are links to the four rides currently available:

Stevenage Cycling Festival - Red Route - This route starts between the swimming pool and King George IV paying fields, goes along Grace Way, Martins Way, down towards Cory's Mill and then along some lovely green routes to Fishers Green and Symonds Green before returning to the start.

Blue Route - This route ride through starts at the crossing point of Oaks Cross in Broadwater. It takes the old Shephall Lane towards Ridlins Mere nature reserve, along past Ridlins Stadium, through Poplars, and then along Six Hills Way towards Fairlands Valley Park, it turns south through the Showground down the hill behind the Lamex Stadium before meandering back along the old Shephall Lane back to the start on Oaks Cross.

Green Route - the first of the 2 Parks routes. This one takes you from Fairlands Valley Park to St Nicholas Park. It shows you a simple route (that does include some quiet road riding) between the two parks and a nice cycleway circuit on the return journey.

Stevenage to Knebworth village and back - This route is not on the Cycling festival map. It can be seen on the Stevenage Cycle Map though. Here the route starts at the Oaks Cross Cycleway crossing point and heads down Oaks Cross through Broadwater down to the Hertford Road and then picks up a delightful Bridleway across the fields to finishing by using a residential road and a short stretch of the main road into Knebworth. The return journey heads along the lane towards the Crematorium at Harwood Park, before picking up another bridleway to return to Hertford Road and back up (the easy way) the hill to the top of Oaks cross once more.

Corona Virus update

Dear All,


We take the health of our volunteers and riders very seriously. We are also aware of vulnerability of some of our members and wish to protect them as much as possible in the coming weeks in relation to our activity as an organisation. 


In light of the developing situation with Covid-19 the decision has been taken to defer the Start of the Summertime event. We are hopeful this is just a deferment and we will be able to put the ride on later in the year. 


Further to this we have decided to suspend the club competitions with a point scoring system (eg Blazing Saddles). This is to ensure no one is feeling the need to ride with us or go against the current advice available from the Government. 


As a final point due to this being a fluid situation with daily updates we will keep everyone informed by social media and Email tomorrow around 6pm regarding the group rides moving forward. Although I appreciate Cycling is a low risk activity we will need to heed the advice of Cycling UK and the Governement. 


Wishing you all well,

Tina Walker - Chair
Nicola Morris- Welfare officer
Gary Spicer - Secretary
Jackie Cooper - SSOSS organiser

Support Cycling In Stevenage

This weekend please visit the consultation related to the new town redevelopment. It's in the former Subway unit in the Plaza in the Town Square from July 19-21 (10am to 4pm). Its critical that cyclists look at what they are planning and make comments, people will be there to collect comments and if we don't act we will loose the opportunity to influence developers and improve our access around and into the town centre. Please take part, its important to all of us!
