Not quite the reverse of the Barnet to Mercanto Metrapolitano ride, as this one starts in Greenwich village and ends up at Hertford North Station. Originally plotted when we waved Andy and his son off on their spectacular route from London to Switzerland, on their 'Cycle for Ecuador' ride.
The route heads north along the Lee Valley following the River Lee as it meanders lazily through some of London's industrial heartland and eventually out to the leafy edges and countryfied conurbations.
The option to ride all the way back to Hitchin is there... but you may prefer to hop on a train at Hertford North. Spectacular on a sunny Sunday morning.
