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.

Autumn 2014

We run a number of pre-planned rides out from the Watford Area. Over months of September, October and November we have rides to Chiswell Green, Beaconsfield, Denham, Chipperfield, Bovingdon, Aldbury and Elstree. We have a ride taking off from Amersham Station over the Chiltern Hills, breakfast rides at the weekend and cream tea at Blacketts.

And when we are not riding: Listen to Diana’s drummer brother is playing with Rancie`s Rockin` Chair Band or meet us at our social night in the Moon Under Water.

There are two important Afe Cycling Meetings happening during this Autumn period.
