Rides Update

We hope that you all got the opportunity to take advantage of the sunshine this week, the summer is finally in full swing!


With the changes in COVID restrictions passing on Monday we can now update our ride guidance. This is in line with the guidance from British Cycling. There are two key changes to the guidance:

  • All 7:30 groups for Sunday rides will meet in the Market Square
  • You no longer need to send group names to the secretary.


This Sunday (25th July) the 9:45 ride will be a cafe ride, heading to Poppy's Barn in Clavering. This loop is about 30km in total, and there's the option for cake at the barn - What's not to love?

Meet outside of Bicicletta if you're interested!


Hopefully this is the last time we need to ask - we need just two more marshals for the 29th July (this Thursday) and the 26th August.

It's an easy job, but makes a big difference to how successful the races are. If you can help, please email us.

Social Ride 21 July

This weeks Wednesday evening social ride will leave the Market Square at 6.45 (sharp) and ride for approximately 1.5 hours.

The route heads south via Debden, Henham and Stansted Mountfitchet before looping back into town via Wendens Ambo. Where we will finish at the Railway Arms.Average speed will be around 15/16mph to suit the group.

Based on previous good numbers, we may need to split into two groups, so please arrive a few minutes early so we can organise.Remember, Wednesday evening is a social ride, so no shooting off the front of the group. Please ride together, keep the pace appropriate for all and have a good chat with your fellow club members!

Please load the route before we leave, bring a jacket if stopping at the pub and make sure you have lights for the ride home if stopping for a drink!
