JOIN OUR SOCIAL RIDES
We have decided to suspend the rides over the winter months but look forward to starting again in the New Year. Many thanks for your support this year, we've had some fantastic numbers joining the rides!
Every Saturday we have a Social Ride which leaves from the shop at 8:30am. These rides are generally for the slightly more experienced road cyclists as we ride at an average 16mph for around 35 miles. We have many local cyclists who join us regularly creating a group of between 10 and 30 each Saturday. We sometimes split into 2 or 3 groups depending on numbers and experience.
During the summer months we have a Thursday evening ride which leaves the shop at 6:30pm and is aimed at the newer road cyclist or new to group cycling. These rides are at an average 14-15mph for around 20 miles. Our regular routes take us out to Stock, Ingatestone, Margaretting, Mountnessing, Highwood, Blackmore, Bulphan, Bicknacre, Hanningfield and Cock Clarks along some of the quietest, most beautiful country lanes of Essex.
Just turn up - it's free and fun!
The cyclists who join us are local guys and girls who just want to ride in a group, improve their fitness and cycling skills and enjoy some social cycling banter! Riding with a social group is more rewarding than solo riding. We are fully insured as a member of the national cycling charity CYCLING UK and always have a leader and rear rider to control the group.
