Ride – Tewin Orchard Apple Picking
9th October 2016 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Our October ride happened to coincide with Apple Day at Tewin Orchard so that was chosen as the destination. We decided to meet at Wrestlers Bridge in Hatfield because if we had started in WGC it would have been rather a short ride (although we could have extended it by going a longer way round). Three of us set off from Hatfield and we picked up another three at Morrisons in WGC.
From Morrisons we cycled south alongside the B195 then crossed the road to take the cycleway leading to the roundabout at the junction of Moors Walk and Panshanger Drive. Continuing north on the cycleway we passed Panshanger airfield and descended a steep gravel track to the B1000. We turned right and cycled along the verge for about 100 metres before crossing the road and heading up the track past Tewin Mill House to meet Archers Green Lane where we turned left. A bit of a climb brought us into Tewin and we carried on past Lower Green to Upper Green where the Apple Day was taking place.
There was a good selection of cakes available and various stalls to visit, apples to taste and apple juice and orchard honey to buy.

Some of us went on a guided walk around Tewin Orchard Nature Reserve and we all made our own way home. It didn’t rain and although it wasn’t particularly warm we saw plenty of sunshine. A good ride which was enjoyed by all.
