    Right so i thought i would take on the challenge of creating a Hertfordshire MINI meet & run with tunnels. I've picked a date that doesn't clash with any other shows/meets. After a bit of planning i feel the planned route isn't too bad, I've tried to avoid traffic lights as much as possible. Most of the junctions look to be roundabouts with most of the route consisting of Country lanes. The route involves going through Hatfeild tunnel twice both Northbound & south along with a few other underpasses.

    For a central easy to get to start location i've gone for Colney Fields shopping park(AL2 1AB). Just beside the M25 with plenty of parking. Plenty of space to take some good photo's. There is also a Mcdonalds for anyone wanting breakfast.
    Around 10am we will set off on the run. its around 40miles long taking around 1hr 20mins. I've set up a halfway point (The Chequers Pub SG2 8TH) which has a big enough car park to accomadate a few cars so we all re-group.
    Once were ready to leave we will head back down on the desinated route to finish up at South Mimms services(EN6 3QQ). Plenty of choice for lunch & coffee.
    Should be back at South Mimms around 12.30ish.



    Below are detailed directions of the route:

    Leaving Colney fields:
    From the Bell roundabout take the first exit on to A1081
    Follow 1.3miles all the way to the next roundabout & take the 4th exit on to A414
    Follow 3 miles all the way to the next roundabout & take the 2nd exit on to the A1(M)
    Follow 5.1miles through the Hatfield tunnel & exit at Junction 6 (Welwyn A1000)
    At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto Welwyn By Pass Rd/A1000
    At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit and stay on Welwyn By Pass Rd/A1000
    At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit onto Great North Rd/B197
    This will take you under the A1(M)
    Stay on this road 2.9miles until the 2nd roundabout
    At the roundabout, take the 1st exit onto Station Rd
    Across the Mini roundabout & then under the railway bridges Station Rd turns right and becomes Station Approach
    Station approach becomes Park lane
    After 0.2miles Turn right onto Deard's End Lane
    Follow to the end then Turn left onto Stevenage Rd/B197
    Follow to the second roundabout 0.8miles & then take the 3rd exit onto Monkswood Way/A602
    At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit onto Broadhall Way/A602
    Stay on the A602 across 4 roundabouts
    Once across the 4th roundabout 2.3miles The chequers pub comes up on the right

    Leaving the chequers pub
    Turn right towards A602
    Follow along 1.4miles & At the roundabout, take the 1st exit and stay on A602 1.4miles
    At the roundabout, continue straight onto A119

    Follow all the way to the A1(M) roundabout 3.7miles, take the 2nd exit onto the A1(M) slip road to London/A414/M25/St Albans
    Follow through Hatfield tunnel 1.5miles & then At junction 3, take the A414 exit to St Albans/Welham Green
