The Winter Bike Rides take place between end of October and March on Sunday mornings, with the exception of the festive period and when the Sunday Cross Country League events are happening. The Sunday rides are grouped by average speed starting from an average of 14mph upwards and last between 2 and 4 hours, the intensity increasing as we head towards Spring.
They are not coached sessions, but there will be a Group Ride Leader who will plan a suitable route. The actual route for each group will be posted up on the EETC Facebook page on or before the Friday prior to the ride taking place. This will detail the distance, speed and meet location for the ride along with any other relevant information. This gives everyone the opportunity to review and download the route before meeting up on the Sunday.
If you would like to join us on these rides we ask that you first read the important key points for group cycling in the club (on this page)
The rides generally start from Rayleigh or Battlesbridge and this will be announced on Facebook by each group leader during the week leading up to the ride. Map of car parks
Please can all experienced riders and Group Leaders ensure that they have the route for the day on the bike computer in case they are needed to assist and lead at short notice.
