Cycling in Watford
Watford town centre and the surrounding area is relatively compact and the terrain is generally quite flat. Over 15 km of new cycle routes have been developed in the town since 2003 and a range of cycle maps are available locally. In Watford cycling to work makes up 2.2% of all journeys compared with 1.6% across the whole of Hertfordshire.
National Cycle Routes 6 and 61 run across the eastern and southern sides of the town, utilising the off-road Ebury Way and Abbey Way. There is a continuous cycle route through the north-south axis of the town centre, including the pedestrianised parts along The Parade and High Street. Cycle parking is provided at intermittent points in the town centre and at local centres in the wider town.
Whether you buy a bike from one of our bike shops or our website, our Ride Happy Promise covers you. That means you'll get a bike that is properly built and delivered to you how you want.
The Watford Cycle Hub provides lots of bike related support. We offer bike repair services, maintenance courses, cycle training and free guided rides! We also accept your unwanted bikes (the ones that have been cluttering up your garage for years) and recycle them, salvaging what we can.
