Cycling and Walking Paths

There are several walking and cycling paths in and around Harpenden including part of the National Cycle Network which has recently been resurfaced and extended. This will take you all the way to Luton (although be aware that there is a road to cross at East Hyde) and out to the opposite direction of Wheathampstead and beyond. Good starting points are by the Amble Inn at the bottom of Station Road and the Red Cow down Westfield Road. Or you can cycle the Nickey Line (see seperate listing)more...

Cycling the Nickey Line

If you fancy a stroll away from the town towards Redbourn the Nickey Line gives you nearly 9 miles of rural paths to run, cycle or walk the dog and children. It is great for beginner or nervous cyclists to avoid the roads. You can join at the new ramp entrance by Highfield Oval on Ambrose Lane or further on near Roundwood Park School on Park Hill. If you're feeling ambitious you can cycle all the way to Hemel Hempstead, but you can take some of the cut-off paths that will bring you into the back of Rothamstead Park. more...

Harpenden has several caches hidden in and around the town and the idea is that you find the treasure without alerting any passers-by. Great fun for all the family and FREE! more...
