I'm planning on getting out early doors on Sat (Yes, I have young children). Don't mind around Hertford or Broxbourne. Was thinking of a start about 0745 to get a good 2 to 3 hours in. If anyone fancies waking the birds up with me then let me know. Happy to agree on a location to meet etc.

If I only I saw this yesterday I was over Broxbourne early. I headed through the woods onto Hertford heath and XC to Wareside. First time out on the bike in a while and bloody needed it too. Need to get back in the saddle more from now on. This weathers not helped one bit

First time for me through Broxbourne woods and I enjoyed it. Need to definitely explore it more. Ended up going via Goose Green into Hertford Heath then back the weather got so much better in the afternoon. Shame it was just a morning ride. I'm not around next weekend but would be up for a ride the weekend after (sat 29th).

I'd be up for a ride on the 29th, although I'd prefer a slightly later start if possible. I've ridden Broxbourne woods quite a bit so know most of the routes.

I've been through Broxbourne woods but never found anything decent, looking in the wrong places probably.

That sounds good next weekend I'll be around.

There's some good singletrack in the woods. Did you stick to the main crossroad paths that are wide or venture down some of the tracks?

Broxbourne is ok overall, but I prefer to include it as part of a longer ride, it can get a bit boring just cycling around the woods. I've got a loop of about 20 miles starting and ending in Hertford.

I like the sound of the 20 mile ride starting and ending in Hertford. Sat 29th is good for me.

Great, shall we say 9am start at Cafe Rouge in Hertford? I ride a silver specialized stumpjumper. The ride normally takes around 3 hours.

Sounds like a plan. I'll be there and I'll be on a Scott 29er.

Great, the more the merrier.
Just for reference, I usually ride up Mangrove Rd then head into the woods for an hour or so, coming out before the steep hill on the way to Newgate Street, then via Little Berko and back along Cole Green Way.
It will be a very relaxed pace as I've hardly been on the bike all year:-
