Cycle Steps
This is a pleasant 20 mile ride that takes in some of the scenery and small towns and villages in Hertfordshire. The route generally takes quiet back roads although the route does meet two fairly major roads along the route. Starting off in Hertford, you go through Bengeo, Sacombe, Dane End, Whempstead, Benington, Aston, Datchworth and Bramfield before returning to where you started from. There are a few hills which may cause difficulty with very inexperienced riders.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Small village churches in Sacombe, Benington and Datchworth.
Benington Lordship - especially in the spring when there is a large array of snowdrops.
The Pig And Whistle Pub in Aston
Stevenage Golf Centre

Did this yesterday - mainly quiet roads, nice little villages, rolling hills and lots of bluebells out around Sacombe (especially if you take a detour down Whempstead Lane and up Mill Lane).

First time I've used this site and this route was perfect. Surprised how quiet lanes were and much prettier than expected. Had lunch watching the cricket at Aston, refreshing pint at Datchworth, had buzzards circling over head and poppys out in the fields. A great afternoons ride.
