Essex Lanes Ride
*** This ride is now confirmed ***
A circular ride from Bishops Stortford, via Thaxted (morning tea/coffee stop) and cafe lunch in Saffron Walden. Good countryside and pleasant lanes to ride on, undulating rather than hilly. Around 45 miles but we can adjust this one down or up on the day to suit the weather and the pace of the riders. Train fare £15, £7.50 with a group ticket. If you don't want to eat in the tea shop and cafe then please bring along your own food and drink but you may find yourself sitting in the rain or a bus shelter!
Meet at Liverpool Street (outside NR ticket office) at 8:30am. Alternative meeting point at Tottenham Hale station ticket office at 8.45am.

Upcoming rides & events
Our rides are highlighted by "RIDE". You don't have to be a member to join in and we're also always looking for new ride ideas. Contact our Rides Co-ordinator for further information.
There is no need to register beforehand for a ride unless this is specifically stated, most rides are "turn up and go".
Please note that for train assisted rides we often cannot publish times until about 2 weeks beforehand because of the need to check engineering works. Also sometimes our ride leaders do have to change dates/times/routes at reasonably short notice. Generally this website will be up to date and also details will be sent out to our email groups, but if in doubt contact the ride leader or our rides co-ordinator to check arrangements.
