Mainly quiet roads with some cycle ways and a couple of busy B Road stretches. 2136 feet of climbing, some challenging. Lunch plan is a BYO Picnic in Verulamium Park, near the café. Café may provide an alternative but long queues last time so a few of our group used the cold/drink ice cream outside counter as an alternative.
