Landmarks/Sites to see?
Baldock is a handy stopping point for refreshments. Stotfold has some shops. Henlow has some pubs for lunch. Saw one bike shop but it was closed on sunday! The last part of the ride is on the A600 which is busy. Not particularly suitable for those who are a bit nervous on busy roads.
