Welcome to WelHatCycling. 

Whether you have only just started to ride, or you think you should get back on that old bike that's been lying in the shed for years, we aim to provide the motivation and the confidence to get you cycling. We can help you get your bike fit for the road, show you the best local cycle routes and even find someone to teach you how to ride.  Our aim it to get People on Bikes.



About The Group

WelHatCycling is the informal name of Welwyn Hatfield Cycling Forum, which is a CTC affilated group. Our simple aim is to get People on Bikes.

We organise led rides on the second Saturday of every month throughout the year. Starting normally at 11:00 in either Hatfield or Welwyn GC, rides are open to all ages and abilities, but juniors must be accompanied by an adult. Wherever possible we follow off road cycle paths and quiet roads and ride approximately 20 miles in total, with a lunch break at a cafe or pub en route. Nobody gets left behind and we always carry tools to get you home in case of a minor breakdown.

Our monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month, where we discuss our future activities and local cycling issues. Meetings are open to all and are usually held in Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council's offices on the Campus in WGC. See our web site for access arrangements.

We provide a publicity stall at local events throughout the year, where we are available for information about local cycle routes, local and national cycling campaigns. Where possible at these events, we offer a free Bike Check by our qualified mechanics.

Outside our meetings we endeavour to respond to local planning consultations where we believe new, or improved cycling infrastructure may be needed. We are also pleased to offer pre-planning advice to local organisations who wish to provide cycling facilities within their proposed developments.

About our rides

WelHatCycling rides are designed to encourage you to cycle for all your local journeys. We are not road racers, or long distance tourers, our simple aim is to get People on Bikes. We will show you the local cycling network at a leisurely pace, riding normally around 20 miles with a lunch break at a local cafe, or pub en route. Nobody gets left behind and we always carry a small tool kit to get you home in the event of a minor breakdown.

See our website for latest ride details.
