Weekly roundup – Happy new year!


We know that some of you may have been out of the saddle for a while and may feel that, at the moment, a two hour ride is out of your reach. To give you something to look forward to we will be hosting shorter rides, specifically for those returning to (or new to) group riding.

These will be around one hour, depending on the group, and will be no drop, meeting in the Market Square at 9:30 on a Sunday - that should mean you can join the group at Bicicletta after the ride!

The first of these rides will be on 15th Jan and  29th Jan  - I'll send a reminder and a route with next weekend's ride.


We'll be continuing to host virtual club rides in Zwift for the foreseeable future, for those of you who are unable to join us on the road for any reason. If you'd like to suggest a specific route, please suggest it on the club page in the companion app.

Club Link: https://www.zwift.com/uk/clubs/dbb388c7-d184-4e8c-8fdd-f868777fd4ac/join 

Sunday morning at 9:00 lasting up to two hours, and Wednesday Evening at 19:30, lasting up to 90mins.

If you want to have a voice chat during the ride, please join the Discord channel - You'll find the link in the zwift club.


Sunday morning's rides will follow WR8 (https://www.waldenvelo.com/wr8/). The two two hour routes head west, into the Essex/Hertfordshire hills. The three hour steady ride heads west initially, before heading east of Saffron Walden. Finally, the three hour tempo ride heads towards Stevenage.

The current forecast for Sunday is looking typical for the East of England - a bit breezy!


Wednesday (9:30):  Midweek 2: https://www.waldenvelo.com/mid-week-rides/ 


Friday (9:30):  Midweek 3 (https://www.waldenvelo.com/mid-week-rides/)

We look forward to seeing you out on the road!
