The club puts on a number of rides each week, covering a variety of local routes into the Essex countryside. There are groups catering to riders of all paces and abilities and more often than not our cyclists can be found enjoying a post-ride coffee and cake at a local coffee shop. As well as club rides we also hold club time trials and hill climb events, as well as having a team compete in a local race series.

 

The club enters sportives locally and abroad with cyclists completing rides such as London to Southend, The Prudential Ride 100, Etape London, The Kentish Killer and further afield The Chiltern 100, The Dragon Ride in Wales and the Etape du Tour in France.

 

We also undertook a Hornchurch to Paris ride over three days, raising thousands of pounds for the club's chosen charity. In 2017, a smaller group are attempting the same ride in just 24 hours!

 

Last year 24 riders went to the Alps to tackle the climbs of the Tour De France, this year 46 will return to repeat the experience.

 

Throughout the year the club has arranged many events for the benefit of our cyclists, these include rider skills & training at Hog Hill, talks from a local pro rider, winter spin classes and first-aid training.

 

The club utilises social media and instant messaging to advertise rides, both scheduled and ad-hoc, and for those wishing to commute together into London.

 

We are a very sociable club, with cyclists meeting weekly to attend a quiz night at a local pub, as well as having regular club socials. We also arrange a summer family day and Christmas party.
