 Post subject: Hertford Heath / Broxbourne ride?

Hi,

Does anyone fancy meeting up for a ride in the Hertford Heath/Broxbourne Woods area?

I've just got back into mountain biking and I am hugely unfit, so serious XC riders may not want to wait for me to wheeze up the hills, but I'd be up for a couple of hours' ride. I usually park on Hertford Heath and take in some of the singletrack around there before heading down the Roman road (not sure what it's actually called) to Broxbourne Woods.

Thanks to the wonders of being self-employed I'm often around weekdays as well as weekends.

Chris

I'm actually off the bike for a while due to a health issue, but I should be back (and slower than ever!) in a week or two. Give me a shout if you'd like to go for a blast.

Hi, I'm from Hertford Heath. i'm pretty familiar with the tracks around the Heath, Haileybury and Broxbourne woods. I'm definitely no expert, can be about on PM Saturdays and most of Sundays.

Hi Guys

Im looking to find new rides not to far from St Albans to keep me riding through this horrible bleak dreary period (bring on the summer !) and came across Broxbourne.Ive seen some nice youtube vids of some nice flowing trials (yet again bring back the summer!).
Anyone know of them and can either described where to find them or even better fancy showing me around?
Q.Are Bencroft Woods ,Wormley Woods + Hertford Heath part of whats known as Broxbourn woods or separate?

Im normally around 10am-2pm weekday (between drops off and pick up times).Try to ride 3/4 a week.

Be great to discover more - even if its just advising me of where to park and which direction to head out in.
Cheers

Ive got a high top van, i can only get into the parking at Ermine street (Martins Green) its right next to Hoddesdon woods. I have been riding there on mondays and take a different route everytime i go. most is muddy and hard going but ive ridden 5 times this year so my fitness and legs are rubbish.

You're doing better than me. Last time I went for a ride was in the autumn sometime!

I'm tied up for the next couple of weeks, but up for organising something early March.

I am spectacularly unfit right now - haven't actually ridden yet this year - but I'd be up for that. Away next week, but I can usually do the same sort of times.

Hey Chris.
That'll work. It's half term next week so it would be the week after.
I'll buzz you a few days before to arrange.

On another thread on here someone posted this link showing the trails.
https://www.trailforks.com/trails/map/? ... z=15&m=osm

Could be worth checking out.
Apparently park in the farmers boy carpark
