Fantastic cycling in and around Stevenage say the local group of Cycling UK
04 February 2021
Cycling UK Stevenage

Although it’s only possible to cycle in ones and twos as we look after each other and those around us there are dozens of routes from our front doors to get good exercise, some fresh air and perhaps see things we’ve missed in normal times.

There are about 45 kilometres of cycleways in Stevenage and many miles of quiet roads around the town.

While the group activity many enjoy can’t happen Cycling UK Stevenage have offered many opportunities, lots of variety, to get on their bikes and get fit locally.  After nearly eleven months the variety is very welcome.
