Ride – Devils Dyke & Wheathampstead
12th June 2016 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
It was a bit damp as we made our way to the start point and carried on being a bit damp once we got going, but warm enough for shorts and sandals. Just three of us set off and cycled to Devil’s Dyke near Wheathampstead. We went for a detour along the remains of this ancient defensive ditch – a bit slippy in the damp but interesting to think that it defended (or failed to defend) the Catuvellauni tribe so long ago.

Historical duty done we headed off to Wheathampstead to the always dependable Charlie’s Cafe in Wheathampstead.
After welcome coffee and cake
