See how green Watford is on a mostly traffic free 7 mile ride with gentle gradients, taking in off-road sections, including canal towpaths, and around 1 mile of quiet roads. Hopefully the Green Ring will make cycling & walking a first choice for journeys where previously a car would have been used. It links Croxley Business Park, Cassiobury Park, Town Hall and Library, Watford shopping centre, Watford Junction, Waterfields Recreation Ground, Watford High Street Station, Tesco and nearby retail parks, Oxhey Activity Park, Watford General Hospital and Ebury Way.
