Codicote to: Hitchin
7 miles in Hertfordshire, although the mile or so from The Royal Oak to Hitchin is just straight. The road is national limit from the end of the 30 limit in Codicote. Some good fast-but-interesting bends, and a couple of tighter ones (40-50?), but in the main it's too quick and narrow to get your knee down in safety. The small straights have some up-and-downage to maintain your interest. The main fun of the road is not in one feature in particular but the feel of the road as a whole. A resident herd of deer can usually be seen at the western edge of Knebworth Park. The surface is generally good but there are some repaired strips which spoil your line in a couple of corners.
