|Nice circular route, starting just off the high street heading out of the main streets, crossing the M1.
Passes by Aldenham Golf Club out into nice country roads. Half way point on Watting Road.

|This loop is incomplete! We attempted this route the other day and, whereas the first half takes in some really lovely countryside and sights, when you get to about half way it all goes wrong. |
We went up and down, back and forth trying to find a right turn that wasn't there! Very frustrating. In the end we had to abandon the route and double back for miles.
We made our own way to Aldenham Park and followed Google Maps home. Wouldn't recommend it.

|There IS a route here, more or less, but it has to be adjusted because Hill Farm (at the top) has put in a gate and is no longer open to the public. |
HOWEVER, if you continue down Watling Road a little further north, on your left you will come to a tarmac road which gives way a little later to a series of bridal paths, which will take you onto Crab Lane. Be careful though, because Crab Lane is (as far as I could tell) unmarked, and it was only by looking at google maps on my iphone that I knew I was on it.
That whole northern section is just dirt paths, by the way, so it probably wouldn't be suitable for road bikes, but I found it very pleasant on a mountain bike.
Rest of the course is fairly straightforward, a few more major roads than I would have liked, but I guess that's inevitable. Takes about an hour and a half at a leisurely pace (and allowing time for wrong turns). Would ride again.
