As the Cycling season draws to a close, good sportives are becoming harder and harder to find. If like us you don’t want to lose your form over the winter, you’ll be looking for a November ride that is challenging yet suitable for the autumnal conditions.
We have the ride for you! The Essex Season Ender takes place on Sunday the 19th of November 2017, covering roads that can be thoroughly enjoyed at any time of year. We’ve worked hard to take this route through some beautiful countryside that can be enjoyed by all, at the same time minimising junctions and crossings so that all you fast people can get a real rhythm going.
Our event HQ is the prestigious Redbridge Cycling Centre, here the ride can make use of the newly built closed track. The raised location of the land in this part of Essex gives you a amazing panoramic view of the City of London while still being surrounded by the peace of the countryside.
The Essex Season Ender offers two stunning routes that head out North East from Redbridge Cycling Centre onto quiet rolling countryside roads. Both routes take in beautiful scenery that is extremely popular amongst local cyclists due to the variety of terrain on offer – both routes take on hills such as Hoe Lane, as well as offering flatter sections for those looking to get their average speed up.
Redbridge Cycling Centre has a superb closed road track. We’ve hired in extra timing systems, so if the feeling takes you you’ll to tell you exactly how fast you went around the magnificent 2 Kilometre road race circuit.
