Our Club

What we do

Club rides

We operate weekly club rides out into Essex, Hertfordshire and sometimes beyond on Sundays almost every week (unless it’s Christmas Day or the weather is truly apocalyptic).

Club Kit

Our kit is coordinated via an online shop, with 2-3 kit windows throughout the year. Members will be notified via email when the kit windows are open.
Members can  order items direct from the online shop, these will then all be manufactured and shipped directly to you. Delivery is expected 4-6 weeks after the kit window is closed.

Introductory Rides

We understand that it can be daunting taking the step to join a cycling club. You might think we ride flash bikes, fast and for hundreds of miles in one go! Well, some do but not all; we're inclusive for all and we generally have groups to suit all abilities. It is with this in mind that we hold intro rides for those who want to ride a litttle further, with like minded people and experience the joy of group riding, coffee and cake!. In 2024, the Intro Rides are held every first Saturday, April to September and are a gently 30 miles or so introduction to group riding out into the Essex lanes.
