Teens Unite Herts 50k Cycle

Teens Unite 1st Annual Herts Countryside 50k

We are very proud to have supported the first annual Herts 50k cycle, for the wonderful charity Teens Unite, this past weekend. 

Sunday 22nd of May saw the Teens Unite first inaugural Herts 50k Cycle. Teens Unite support young people fighting cancer and the Herts 50k was organised to raise funds for this very worthy charity. The Herts 50k cycle was a ride planned around a circular loop around the idyllic Hertfordshire countryside, passing through Waterford, Hertford, Ware, Wareside, Hunsdon, Whempsted, Wareside and Watton.

For the first outing, it could not have been better. Nicky and the team at Teens Unite did a wonderful job, and we even had some less than typical sunshine and 24 degree heat to boot- what a result! 

After setting up in the morning and helping a dozen or so of the riders with minor technical issues, mainly soft tyres- the riders set off at 10.30 to enjoy a beautiful meandering route through the Hertfordshire countryside. After first navigating through Hertford and Ware, they escaped the unusually busy roads out into the countryside via Stanstead abbotts, before heading off towards Widford, Wareside and Dane End- with a quick rest stop. The second half of the ride took the riders to the slightly hillier riding towards Knebworth and Watton-At-Stone,before heading back down to the start/finish point in Waterford at the Village Hall. 

We did a quick sweep of the route at around 12.00 to make sure all of the riders were happy, and that there were no mechanical disasters- And all was well! 

And to finish? A very well prepared BBQ and some well earned drinks! (Alcohol was optional too!) with some music and sunshine, everyone was welcome including supporters and friends of the riders.

It really was a great event to be a small part of. The atmosphere was fantastic, bringing people together of all ages and backgrounds for a really great cause. All in all a brilliant event, especially for the first attempt and it can only get better from here.
