    I have just changed the club’s event details to allow pre-entry by the website.
    Can you try this link http://www.essexroads.com/events/boxing-day-tt/ and see if you can make a booking.
    Thanks

    Hello

    My son is looking for Go-ride road race to try, and I found your event on 12th March on the British Cycling website. His 10th birthday is on 8th March. He has a little experience as a member of the Ely+District CC and has enjoyed doing the Muddy Monsters events this winter.

    Can I sign him up for this event? Is there an on-line form? Does he still race with the under-10’s?

    Thanks,

    Martin

    Hello, I want to ask a couple of questions about the Spring Lambs Sportive. I have emailed secretary@essexsportive.com which is shown at the bottom of http://www.essexsportive.com/ but the email was bounced back to me, email address unknown. Can you send me an email address so I can send some questions please?
    Thanks
    Chris

    1. Matt

      Hi Chris,
      Sorry about that, we will have to look at why that happened.
      In the meantime you can email secretary@essexroads.com.
      Best Regards
      Matt

      1. Chris Garside

        Thanks Matt, I have just sent an email.

    Hi

    I’ve signed up for the 100k via Sientries yesterday (Dave Ammon) and i’ve had nothing in my email from them to confirm, pretty sure it all worked but would appreciate someone confirming i am booked on.
    Also can you tell me where i can get a tcx/gpx of the route please?

    Thanks

    Dave

    1. Martin

      What’s the vertical ascent on Sunday for the long route?

    2. Martin

      Dave – GARMIN files for download here: http://essexsportive.weebly.com/route-map1.html
      No email verification but if you log on to sientries.co.uk the event is under ‘my entries”

  6. Martin

    What were the gold / silver / bronze guide times? I thought I saw gold at 5’45” and fruitlessly chased that (and shot myself in the foot stopping to assist a puncture afflicted rider in the home stretch…).
    Excellent ride as ever, splendid weather if a fair bit breezier than forecast indicated!! First time I didn’t stop to take advantage of the excellent feed stations as I’d taken enough on the bike to get me around without dead time in transition!
    Shame the route overlapped with a road running event, but can’t have everything and it was splendid as ever.

  7. Philip Randle

    Hi
    Is it ok to turn up on the night or do I need to register in advance for your TT I’m not from your area but I will be working in Basildon on the 10th

    1. Len Gordon

      Philip

      It is ok to turn up on the night as a guest but there is a maximum number of riders that are allowed to take part so if I have already reached the maximum I am not allowed to let any more people ride.

      1. Philip Randle

        Thanks Len
        I will pop along then and see.

  8. Tom Henderson

    Do you need a TT bike for this or can you do it on a road bike?

    1. Len Gordon

      Tom

      The TT can be done on either a road or TT bike.
      Normally best to do a few TT’s on your road bike first before spending any hard earned cash on a TT bike.

  9. Richard Payton

    Can I just come along in the morning and join a ride?

    1. Matt

      Hi. Yes new joiners are welcome and there are new people coming along all the time. Anyone will be able to direct you to the most appropriate group. We suggest joining a couple of rides before making a decision on joining.

  10. Daniel Johnson

    Havent participated in a TT before Is it possible to participate?
    Im a member of welwyn a (CTT club)
    if so where can I find the details of the course and the event?
    Dan Johnson

    1. Len Gordon

      Dan
      Think it is a bit late to reply now as you turned up last week. Been busy with other cycling related stuff so not be logging onto the club’s website to reply to comments.

  11. Kelvin Fleuty

    Hi do you have to be a member of Essex Roads to do the TT.
    Thanks

    1. Len Gordon

      Kelvin
      A member of any cycling club is always welcome to code and ride the TT. There is no restriction to the number of times they do this. The only thing we would ask it hey do more than 4 is to offer to help out by volunteering to marshal at one of the TT’s.
      People who do not belong to a cycle club are only allowed to ride 2 club TT’s per year. This is a CTT rule. It is not just 2 TT’s per club but 2 TT’s per calendar

  12. neil chapman

    Hello.
    Do you or would you accept private riders. I was trying to sort a ride out for a junior in the club (Maldon)
    His name is Harry Wood .

    Kind regards

        Thank you. See you tomorrow

    2. Matt

      Hi Neil, yes he is more than welcome to come and ride at our events. All he needs to do is contact len at len@essexroads.com. He will also need to sign the relevant CTT forms and have parental consent to be able to ride.

  13. tania

    Hi there,

    Is it possible for any child to turn up on the day or do you have to be a member to join in on the racing?

  14. Tom Henderson

    Is this for mountain bikes or road bikes?

  15. Preethi

  16. Trish norris

    Hi ya, I have just bought a bike and would like to start ride ing with the bike club, do I just come along tomorrow morning and join then?

    1. Matt

      Hi Trish. Yes just come along. It’s best to come on a couple of rides and then you can decide if you would like to join. Steve Bristow is the club ride secretary who should be there else anyone in an Essex Roads top will be more than happy to direct you to the most appropriate group to start with. Thanks!

  17. Paul Newbury

    Hi Matt
    Yes I would like to join you tomorrow morning started to ride 3 weeks ago.

    1. Matt

      Great! Steve Bristow is the the club ride secretary and should be there else anyone in an Essex Roads top will be more than happy to direct you to the most appropriate group.

  18. Kelly Bishop

    Hi. I wanted to post a big thank you to the guys who stopped to look after me today when I came off my bike just outside of Roxwell where the road resurfacing is quite dangerous. I think Steve was the name of the Essex Roads member ( sorry if I got that wrong. ) no major damage done, just some grazes and bruises, wonky handle bars and a little pride bruise.

    Thank you all again. Much appreciated.

  19. Danny Isaacs

    Hi,
    I’m thinking about joining and wanted to try out a ride tomorrow, but can only make it to the early bird ride. Is it ok to just come along?
    Thanks,
    Danny

    1. Matt

      Hi Danny. Yes it’s fine just to turn up. Anyone in Essex Roads kit will be happy to direct you.

  20. Sam Woodfield

    Good Evening,

    Due to a very successful result at the Finsbury Park RR, I have now achieved my 1st Cat status for the 2018 season and would like to have some time off the bike for a while.
    So it is with regret that I won’t be attending the race this weekend, I totally understand this is late notice and obviously a refund is out of the question but at least it might allow for a reserve to participate.

    All the best,

    Sam Woodfield

  21. Toby Parnell

    Hi there, are you accepting EOL for Sunday’s race?

    1. Paul Crossman

      Hi Toby,

      If you contact Len via Len@essexroads.com, he will be able to advise if spaces are likely on Sunday.

  22. Edward Riches

    How about North Weald base 300mmetres up side(?) lane with field and toilets available, all subject to our local permissions, could this work for you in Assoc with other club not cyclists who need funding assistance?

  23. Mark Toublic

    Hi was with the social group today lost everyone else after North Hill, stayed with jane as she was lost. Made sure she got back ok before I left to get home. See you again soon Mark Toublic.

  34. William

    Thanks Matt, but maybe I’m a little confused. I thought I needed an ERCC membership number to get the discounted entry fee for Spring Lambs?

      Hope this helps
      Jo

      That’s lovely thanks for your help and see you Sunday. If you get there for around 12.30, the first race is off at 1.15pm.
      Cheers
      Dave

  41. Peter Exton

    Does the cancellation include the Hainault Hilly?

  42. Matt Haigh

    Someone left a comment on Jo’s post asking if the Hainault Hilly was running. I added the following reply…..
    The Hainault Hilly is run by the Hainault RC (not Essex Roads CC), organiser Graham Mann has sent an e-mail to all riders stating that he will drive the course and send out a further e-mail to confirm whether the event is to be run or not, Saturday pm latest. If you are a confirmed rider you should have received the email but I don’t see your name on the rider list. Cheers, Matt

  43. Simon Haigh

    Hi David,

    My son is keen to have a go at the next winter series on the 18th. Is there an entry form on the club site or is it as easy to do an on the day entry? We will be coming from Oxford so would appreciate knowing before hand!
    Many thanks
    Simon

    1. Dave Brown

      Fingers crossed the weather keeps away so we can race Simon. Hope to see you Sunday
      Best Regards
      Dave

  44. Steve Clarke

    Hi Dave – at the moment are you still planning running the event tomorrow?

    Cheers,
    Steve

    1. Dave Brown

      Hi Steve,

      Thanks for your email, we are unfortunately going to have to cancel and postpone to next Sunday 25th March. I’ve just been speaking to the team and not sure how the weather is where you are but the snow is settling on the roads now over in this part of Essex and it’s got to continue throughout the night so the situation is sadly not going to improve!

      At least on the plus side you can have a lie in now 🙂

      Hope to see you Sunday 25th March.

      1. Philip Au

        Hello

        Just checking the date – is this on Sunday 25th March?

        I have looked on Redbridge Cycling Centre website and this appears to be listed as Sunday April 8th

        1. Dave Brown

          Hello Philip, yes the date is this Sunday 25th March. I’ll contact Redbridge to amend and to avoid any confusion.
          Many thanks
          Best Regards

  46. Robert Watson

    Hello David.
    My son took part in the go-ride today (Sunday 25th March), and at the end I inadvertantly took home the race number (67, FYI).
    Should I post it back to you at the address on this web page? Or would it be better for me to send it to a different address?
    Thank you,
    Robert.

    1. Dave Brown

      Hi Robert, no problem if you could please post back to me at 11 Trinder Way, Wickford, Essex. SS12 0HQ that would be much appreciated.

  51. Stefan Eichenseher

    Hi there,
    I’m Stefan, organiser of the Windmill Audax Event (18-271,18-272) and you are my last hope. We usually use Victoria CC club hut for our mid-way stop. At very short notice I received notification yesterday, that they have water damage, so can’t use their hut. Lea Valley are not fit for purpose and I just got an email that the Shaftesbury hut is not open for outside hire.
    So I would be very grateful, if we could use your hut as control stop for these rides.

    Unfortunately, I could not find a direct contact number on your site, other than BC.
    Due to the urgency, could you please reply asap, or call me on 07503 163469?

    Thank you very much in anticipation.
    Regards,
    Stefan

    1. Len Gordon

      Stefan
      I have emailed you about this as we might be able to help.

  52. Paul Newbury

    Dear sir
    last week i entered my first time trial at East Hanningfield,

  53. Len Gordon

    Paul
    The TT you entered was on the East Hanningfield circuit.

  54. Paul Newbury

    Hi Len
    Thank you for your reply.
    Yes I would like to enter again tomorrow night East Hanningfield

    Kind regards

  55. Trevor Moody

    Hi,

    Is there going to be a summer series?

    Thanks

    1. Len Gordon

      Trevor

      There were issue with booking Hogg Hill on dates when we would have club members available to assist Dave.

      This meant that we are not able to run a summer series at Hogg Hill.

      Len

  56. Natalie Roberts

    Hi

    I would like to have a go at the tt on Wednesday, do I need to pre book and be a Enver or just turn up?

    1. Len Gordon

      Natalie
      It is best top pre book so that you know a start time.
      When you sign up on the night you just get the next available number which could mean that that you go off late.
      To prebook send an email to lgordontt@sky.com or tt@essexroads.com.
      Len

    Hi, my 14 year old daughter is interested for 20th January race. Please could you tell me the distance of the race.
    Thank you

    1. Dave Brown

      Hi Dawn, Thanks for your email, there are two races, the first race is bunch start and the 2nd is a handicap race. Both races are 3 x laps, which are approx 1.15km per lap so they are fairly short in distance.

      Hope this helps.

      Best Regards
      Dave

  66. Andy

    Hi David, i’ve just entered my son in Sundays U12’s race. How many laps\distance is it? Thanks Andy

    1. Dave Brown

      Hello Andy, great news we look forward to seeing you both on Sunday. There are two U12 races, 1st is a bunch start and the 2nd is a handicap race where riders are set off at timed intervals with the rider finishing first in the first race starting last in the handicap race. Laps are 1.12km long on the lower circuit and there are 2 x laps per race so not too far for young legs!

      Hope this helps and see you Sunday.

      Best Regards

      Dave

        Hi Dave
        Thanks for email.
        Bit of a silly question just checking it is on road bike
        Dawn

        1. Dave Brown

          Hi Dawn,

          These sessions are off road, so a mountain bike or cyclocross bike will be required. We are in the process of obtaining a road circuit for road sessions, bit this is still in working progress at the moment.

          I hope this helps.

          Best Regards

          Dave

      Thank you for your message Keith, may he RIP.

  69. Sue Rogers (nee Fenwick)

    Bill was a stalwart of timetrialling from the late 1940s to end of the century. He was a specialist long distance man, riding several 24 hour time trials. He was part of the team that held National Competition Record for 25 miles in 1947. Always passionate about the sport, he soon took to organising behind the scenes. He served on the RTTC (forerunner of Cycling Time Trials) committee at national level, he served on ECCA, on the now-defunct Essex Cycle Racing Associaton, and on London East District Council, as well as club committee positions, and he promoted time trials too. He timekept, he measured courses. He provided support and encouragement to riders. When I was riding for Essex Roads CC in the 1980s, I couldn’t afford racing wheels and he lent me a beautiful light pair of 28 spoke sprint wheels with Clement Number 3 silk tubulars (the equivalent of riding on top end discs and tubs today) which I used in national championships and Best All Rounder timetrials. He was a total gentleman, very kind, very genuine, with quick wit, dry humour and always wanted to see just, fair play in the sport. RIP Bill.

    1. Dave Brown

      Hi Sue, that’s a lovely message with so much detail about his passion and contribution to our great sport and the many, many riders including yourself who he encouraged and supported along the way on their cycling journey, thank you. I didn’t know him personally, however he was clearly a key figure in the sport, not just for ERCC but also for the time trialling scene locally and nationally, i’m sure he will be missed by many who new him. RIP Bill from all at ERCC and also from the cycling community far and wide.

  80. Dylan Magnay

    Hi,

    I live in Southend but work in Chelmsford and on driving home one night I saw one of your TT taking place.

    I am a cyclist looking to get back into some sort of training and it looks ideal.

    Do you take entrants on the day? Do you require the annual membership? I’d love to hear more so I can consider this and hopefully make it part of the healthier lifestyle I’d like to get back.

    Many thanks,

    Dylan

    1. Len Gordon

      Dylan
      We do take entries on the day but if you are not a member of a cycling club then you can only enter twice per year. This is one of the rules of the national governing body for Cycling Time Trials.
      Dates, location and times are on the club’s calendar

  81. Dylan

    Hi Len,

    Thanks for coming back so quickly. Would the same apply to British Triathlon Members also? What are the entry fees for entrants on the day?

    Many thanks,

    Dylan

  82. Barry Gray

    Hi,

    I would like to enter the TT this coming Wednesday (1st)

    How can I reserve a space?

    Thanks

    1. Len Gordon

      You just need to send an email to tt@essexroads.com. Will need your name and name and telephone number of emergency contact.

  83. Matt Haigh

    Hello Dylan, only just noticed your follow-up question. British Triathlon is not a CTT affiliated club although some triathlon clubs are, see here https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/find-clubs.
    I believe the non-member entry fee for our club time trials is £4.50
    Look forward to seeing you at TT HQ

  84. Len Gordon

    Dylan

    The entry fee for a non Essex Roads member is £5. If you are not a member of a club affiliated to Cycling Time Trials then you are only allowed to enter 2 time trials per year.

  85. Barry gray

    Thank you Len,
    I’ve only just seen this reply! Is it too late for me and a friend to enter still for tomorrow?

    Thanks

    Barry

    1. Len Gordon

      Barry
      The cuttoff for pre-entry is me receiving an email before 10pm on the Monday before the TT.
      Other option is to sign-up on the day and take the next available slot.

      1. Barry gray

        Ah that’s a shame! We will both show up tomorrow and grab the next available slot,

        Cheers mate

  86. Oliver homewood

    Im new to road cycling and would like to join a club or group to cycle destress and also get fit

    1. Len Gordon

  87. Dave Warlow

  88. Paula Fowler

    Do we just turn up?

    1. Len Gordon

      Paula
      You can just turn up and ride but you may want to check with Steve, email cubrides@essexroads.com, first.

    2. Steve Bristow

      Yes, Paula please just come along we are a friendly bunch. Arrive about 8:45 and introduce yourself to a ride leader in ERCC kit – see u soon Steve.

  89. Michael McCarthy

    Can i come along to 24th july TT, only membership is with British Cycling, guessing you will be busy

  90. Len Gordon

    Michael you can come and sign on to the TT this evening. Only requirement if you want to ride more than 2 TT’s in a calendar year is that you have to be a member of a club affiliated to Cycling Time Trials.

  91. Maxine Allen

    Len just checking there is a time trial tonight as we have a set of rollers to return to you.

    1. Matt Haigh

      Sorry, just seen this! It was an Open event. Normal TT’s resume next week and run until end August

  92. Matt Haigh

    Tonights TT is cancelled due to weather conditions. There will be a coffee/tea brewing in the hall for anyone who does turn up.
