Beds and Herts sponsored bike ride
The Beds and Herts Historic Churches trust organises a sponsored bike ride (walkers too) every year in early September. Participants obtain sponsorship on a per church visited basis in order to raise money for the trust and their own church (50:50).
I have made a list of churches near Colney Heath, including their OS grid references to make location easier.
I also have a 47 mile circular route starting at St.Marks, Colney Heath, which takes in 40 churches. The route passes through Hatfield, Welwyn Garden City, Hertford, Ware, Great Amwell, Stanstead Abbots, Hoddesdon, Broxbourne, Cheshunt, Goffs Oak, Cuffley, Northaw and North Mymms.
The route has been chosen to avoid busy roads and hills (!), and to use cycle paths where possible.
Another 50 mile circular route starts at St.Marks, Colney Heath, which takes in 41 churches. The route passes through Hatfield, Welwyn Garden City, Hertford, Ware, Hertford (again), Waterford, Bramfield, Welwyn Garden City, Lemsford, St.Albans.
