Day 1

London to Luton

Our journey begins at ally Pally, the “People’s palace”, a venue where the likes of Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones and The Who have all played, and many more besides. It’s an early meeting time of 8am within the private grounds of Alexandra Palace so you have time to make any final adjustments to your bike (provided by us) and load your bags onto the support crew van. The views across London from here are stunning. Our route takes us quickly out of London along back roads and cycle routes including a flat traffic free trail through Lee Valley Park. The rest of the day is undulating.

Cycle into rural Hertfordshire with great views across the Chilterns then a leisurely lunch stop at The Horns pub, a warm welcome from the bar staff guaranteed. Rest and relax then spend the afternoon cycling along country lanes, through quiet villages all the way to our first overnight stop at Luton. After dinner and briefing from the support crew, everyone heads to the hotel bar for metal talk and bonding over a bottle of Trooper beer on this first evening.
