Coronavirus Covid 19 Update (17th March 2021)

We have posted the runs list for April to June in anticipation we can start club runs and have specifically chosen Meet locations with plenty of space for us to organise ourselves into groups and maintain safe social distancing. While we have to keep to a maximum of six per a group we can choose leaders on the day and each group can decide where to ride and where to stop. Wherever you ride be safe and take care, most importantly enjoy the lovely Essex countryside.

North East Essex

  • We ride on: Tuesdays

Welcome to the North East Essex Section home page. We’re a friendly group with a love of cycling and the countryside around Essex and Suffolk. Our Tuesday rides are loosely centred on Colchester and Tiptree and visit places in Essex and Suffolk. Our rides are of a very social nature and the leaders avoid busy roads, as much as possible, so that quiet lanes and the countryside can be enjoyed. Sometimes there is a ‘culture stop’ during the ride to look at and appreciate a building or place of historical or other interest.

We meet at a different venue for elevenses each week and ride as a group to a pub or café for lunch, after which we continue to café for afternoon tea depending upon the weather and suitability to the members present. There are regularly 15 to 20 riders most weeks and we divide into two groups, one slower group riding about 10mph and a quicker group riding at about 14mph covering a slightly longer route to the same venue.

New members are always made welcome and the pace of the ride is controlled so everyone can keep together. If a rider has a puncture or mechanical breakdown, we stop and there is usually plenty of help and assistance to get them going quickly.

If you feel that you would like to try a ride with the North East Essex Section, you are warmly invited to meet us on the day at the appointed meeting place. For more details see our Tuesday rides list or phone the Secretary.
