My thoughts exactly. This just looks like a run with a series of rests ;)

Re: Hertford Parkrun - Starts 11th Oct

I would have thought Hartham a more logical choice, but regardless of location this is excellent news for runners and would-be runners in Hertford. Don't usually do 5Ks myself (more of a long-distance grinder than a nippy sprinter) but will certainly be giving this a go. Wonder how muddy Panshanger ...

Re: Old Cross Closed

Your delay of 10-12 minutes is probably that short due to the number of motorists using the so-called "rat run", thus allieviating a long queue for you. As for not putting people and property at risk, do you not consider that the selfish parking of cars in that area contributes more to th...

Re: Old Cross Closed

Vehicles travelling down towards the station would turn LEFT from Byde Street into Wellington Street, right into Balfour Street and then right into Port Vale . Do you mean LEFT into Balfour Street from Byde Street? You'd have to turn right to enter Wellington Street. Furthermore, action should be t...

Re: kayaking on the Lea

Thanks for the info, kateg28. From the reading I'd done I didn't realise that individual boats needed licensing, just the paddler. This is from the BCU page: Q.Does everyone in the boat need to be a member? A.The principle of the licence is that the canoe/kayak which a member is paddling is licensed...

Re: kayaking on the Lea

You no longer need a license for cycling on the towpath, that was changed several years ago. Unfortunately the license for canoeing is not free - it comes in around £39 for the year. To be honest, I'm struggling to understand why the license is so expensive (perhaps it contains some kind of public l...

Re: kayaking on the Lea

Thanks. I did see that page but wasn't sure whether it just applied to the London part of the river. However, looking at the British Waterways map it appears that the whole navigable stretch from Hertford is under the administration of British Waterways, so it appears a license is required. So, seco...

kayaking on the Lea

I picked up a kayak at the weekend with the intention of going for a paddle up and down the river (both Beane and Lea) with the kids. Does anyone know if I need any kind of license or permit to do this? I can't find anything online that specifically states one way or another (it seems licenses are r...
