The Essex Roads Club Step-Up Group rides are between the Social Touring Group and the Touring Group. If you already partake in Social Group Rides then this will push your abilities. Average speed will be around 17.5 miles per hour over 60 miles.
Although this is a training ride, others will wait for you, after which the pace is likely to slow.
These rides do stop for a coffee/cake break.
All our Club & Training Rides start and finish at the Council Car Park on the western side of the High Street, Billericay at 9:00. The Car Park is reached by proceeding along the High Street from Sun Corner and turning left just past the Iceland store. See below. From there, we take a variety of routes along quiet country roads that you’ve probably never been down before. We are usually back in Billericay about midday, or you can turn off earlier if it’s easier for you to get home.
