Organised Rides in Essex 2021

We are starting to building up our listing of 2021 organised cycle rides in Essex.

The list will include rides suited to both the less experienced cyclist and the experience sportive rider. If you haven’t been on a charity bike ride – get in training : they’re great fun! But do make sure you and your bike are in reasonable condition on the day!

Some of these rides will have short route options for those who aren’t regular riders. Why not sign up for a few and build up your stamina over the summer and target a longer ride later in the year.
