Passage to Ashridge … Sunday 21 April with West London Cycling

It’s a classic destination on Sunday 21 April as we head to Ashridge House in its resplendent setting … a slightly longer ride as we head into the warmer weather and worth every extra pedalstroke for this wonderful route … not to be missed.

Starts at 9am from the Polish War Memorial (A40 Ruislip / Northolt)

Given the time of year, a detour up Beacon Road at 41km or 52km (soon after the cafe stop) may appeal to some riders .. the Bluebell Wood (Dockey Wood National Trust) is spectacular and additional distance there and back will add just over 1km to the ride.

OPTION ONE: Ashridge House 85km

OPTION TWO: Ashridge House 85 plus 9 – 94km

You can choose your route on the day, and which group you ride in. We generally have several groups on the road, depending on how many people are riding, so it’s flexible and tailored to riders’ needs. The slowest group will generally wait for the slowest rider (or split into sub groups) but you should be able to manage 30kph on flat stretches with an average speed of around 22kph over the distance. Faster groups will be more speedy of course.

Just turn up at 9am at the Polish War Memorial (A40 Ruislip / Northolt) with the route downloaded on your device. To get the route you need to sign up (free – see button above to subscribe) and then you’ll have access to our routes via the members’ zone tab above (choose routes and rides).

As noted above, we decide on the day as to how many groups we split into, it really depends on who turns up. The faster groups will usually do the longer of the two options with the aim of us all reaching coffee stops at similar times
