WE’RE RIDING AGAIN!!
As cafes and pubs re-open and get themselves organised, we will establish where we ride on a weekly basis and not necessarily based on the runs list currently published on this website, although we will endeavour to keep this website as accurate as possible.
Please check for weekly emails from our runs leaders who will update you with our planned rides and will also attach a GPX file for those that like to follow the route during the ride.
New members are always made welcome. If you don’t feel you are ready to join our longer rides, some members only ride to our elevenses tea stop and return home from there, which may be a good option for you as you build up your stamina and fitness. If you would like to join us on a ride please contact our Section Secretary, Graham Kirby.
The Southend section has its own Facebook page ( Forty Plus Cycling Club; Southend ) for members to post comments or photographs. It is a closed group. If you would like to be added, please contact Peter Wotherspoon.

COVID Lockdown Photos
The COVID lockdowns have been a unique part of history and cycling was a joy when the roads were virtually empty. Our members have provided a number of photos of their rides during the COVID period when we have only been able to ride as small groups, pairs or individually. Follow this link to see a larger number of photos of this time: Lockdown Photos.
