Welcome to the web pages of the Mid Essex Tuesday section of the 40+ Cycling Club.

Our rides on Tuesdays are usually around the lanes of Essex.

Rides start at Writtle duck pond or Sandon church and head into all corners of Essex – sometimes dipping into Hertfordshire and Suffolk. Free car parking is available at both start locations. We stop for 30 minutes at 11 am at one of the many cyclist friendly cafes on our list.  The lunch stop is at 1 pm. An hour later will head towards our final stop of the day for afternoon tea. Current participants are mostly from the Chelmsford/Billericay areas but we also have riders from Harlow and Sawbridgeworth who sometimes join us at elevenses and stay with us through lunch. Distances between stops are approximately 17 miles

Group riding numbers vary considerably depending on weather and our destination. However, we rarely have less than six riders at the start and have had as many as 12/13 riders at lunch. We have a nucleus of ten fairly regular riders, plus another six or so occasional supporters. We hope these numbers will increase as more people know about us.
