This ride is planned to be to be one of the longer and more demanding cycale rides.
This ride in its entirety is about 60 odd miles. However, It is possible for anyone who does not want to complete it to drop down in to Braintree and return by train. This would be after about 40 miles. if you plan to come and make the ride shorter , please bring a map!
The plan is as follows:
Meet at Kent Blaxill at the bottom of Layer Road at 9 a.m. Proceed to Tiptree, Witham and Great Notely to the first stop - The Felstar Brewery for the CAMRA games event (25 miles). Then we will proceed to near Great Bardfield to visit one of the most famous cyclists cafes in Great Britain - The Blue Egg. From here we will ride to Wethersfield and Castle Headingham for a possible pub stop. Onwards to Pebmarsh and Fordham for more possible pub stops. Return to Colchester , hopefully for early evening depending on length of stops.
If the weather looks bad this ride can be shortened.
