If you want to join us on a ride then just turn up at the stated start point, have a look at the up and coming Rides. We have rides most weekends, some weekdays & summer evenings, they start at several places around Watford like the Harvestor in Croxley, Morrisons, Watford Cycle Hub.
Our riders come from Watford, Bushey, Garston, Oxhey, Rickmansworth, Croxley, Chandlers Cross, Pinner and other areas in SW Hertfordshire.
The Integrated Transport Projects (ITP) team of Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) was requested to develop proposals to improve cycling facilities to the south of the town centre based on the feasibility study undertaken, as a result of South West Hertfordshire Cycling Study Scheme
SWH5 – “Southern access to Town Centre. We have subsequently developed the recommendations .. “

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the proposed changes.
We welcome the proposals, as having the ability to cycle the full length of the High St. has been a leading issue for SPOKES members for the last 15 years.
We have supported the issues raised in the South West Hertfordshire Cycling Study & believe for a traditional town centre to continue attracting people it must be attractive, friendly, easily accessible and not congested. Street clutter should be kept to a minimum, particularly with railings & signs.
We believe pedestrians & cyclists & disabled people should have a priority over motor vehicles, car-parking should be in official car-parks, but all parties should be catered for.
Spokes is the local cycle club for South West Hertfordshire, formed to encourage cycling by organizing rides & campaigning for better & safer cycling routes.
Spokes campaigns both to get better conditions for cycling in SW Hertfordshire and to encourage more people to enjoy cycling. You are welcome to join our rides or help us out with campaigning.

The logical thing is to make cycling and walking your preferred transport. You make sure that streets prioritise people over vehicles. You legislate and fund accordingly. Walking, cycling, public transport, taxis, private cars. In that order. At the moment it’s almost totally the other way round. It’s not logical or sustainable.
