The Essex CTC is part of the 70000 strong national Cyclists’ Touring Club. The CTC provides its membership with a range of services appropriate for modern day cycling such as third party insurance legal advice and discounts on all kinds of cycling.
The Souteast Essex Group meets at the Wickford Cafe 3-5 The Broadway, Wickford SS11 7AD every Sunday at 9.15am, ready to ride at 9.30am, unless otherwise stated.
We normally leave Wickford in two groups: one group rides at an average speed of about 12mph, and the second group goes slower and takes a more direct route to the cafe stop where both groups meet. After the cafe stop there is usually only one group going on to the lunch stop.
We ride at the speed of the slowest rider and if you get a puncture, someone will stop to help you. We are a non-competitive “leisure for pleasure” group. Riders not intending to go onto lunch after elevenses will be able to return to the starting point by joining the returning group led by an experienced leader.
Club nights are held twice a month.
