Many of you will have the old Activity Map from 2005 which had become seriously out of date. So WelHatCycling applied to the Welwyn Garden City Centenary Fund to get the map updated and we now have a 2021 edition. You can find the PDFs on this website on our routes page.
The Activity Map would not have happened without the kind sponsorship of Austin’s Funeral Services and Waitrose. On Monday 26th April 2021, we were very pleased to attend a launch event at the new Ebenezer Howard statue where we were joined by Claire Austin and OJ Daya from the two companies to show off the map.
The double sided map shows all the current cycle routes (off and on roads), footpaths, local sporting venues, plus childrens play areas and the circular Centenary Walk, which you will see signposted around Welwyn Garden City with little orange signs. The reverse side fits in Northaw Great Park and a useful list of local nature reserves and parks.
Also launched at the same event was the Welwyn Garden City Photo Trail which we can recommend as an excuse to cycle around the town looking for historic buildings.
Our thanks also go to Roger Moulding (our Treasurer) for managing the Activity Map project, WelHatCycling members (map corrections), Stephen Wragg (cartography and design), Kate Meredith (WGC Centenary Foundation), John Beech, Eric Walsby and Dave Bartlett (Centenary Sport-for-All Group) and Paul Hajisavvi (launch event photographer) who all made this happen.
