Leader Trevor. Nine Wheelers set off from the Watton pavilion on a bright but chilly morning at a brisk pace into Hertford before taking West Street out of the town and heading up the long incline into Brickenden.

The ride then skirted Broxbourne Woods  and passing Paradise Wild Life Park to continue on leafy lanes  into the outskirts of Hoddesdon. Another longish climb followed passing over the motorway and by Hoddesdon Wood Park before returning to Hertford via Brickendonbury for bacon rolls and coffee at the Rose Cafe.

The return to Watton was through Waterford and Stapleford covering 24.5 miles in all.
