Love the new look but the content about riding groups is very out of date and inaccurate. Will this be sorted out?
Hi Carlos. Yes, this is something we are looking to update. Feel free to email over anything you feel should be included.
Please could you put me down to ride your Boxing Day TT
Club is veloschilsinterbike rt
Thanks Colin Lewin
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.
Cant seem to pre enter with that link,if its not a problem ill just enter on the day
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?
Hello, I want to ask a couple of questions about the Spring Lambs Sportive. I have emailed email@example.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?
Sorry about that, we will have to look at why that happened.
In the meantime you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks Matt, I have just sent an email.
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?
What’s the vertical ascent on Sunday for the long route?
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”
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.
FREE TRIAL CLASS for any of your club members? – Are you feeling like you need a good stretch? Tight in the hips? Tight ankles? Reformer, or barre pilates will help strengthen those areas, and lift you out of your hips. It will also help to build up core and back strength. Why not try our reformer and barre pilates studio, CONTOUR Pilates, in Brentwood. For more information on times go to http://www.contourpilatesstudio.co.uk/timetable/ And simply email Amy with your time – email@example.com
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
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.
I will pop along then and see.
Do you need a TT bike for this or can you do it on a road bike?
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.
Can I just come along in the morning and join a ride?
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.
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?
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.
Hi do you have to be a member of Essex Roads to do the TT.
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
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 .
A member of another 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
Thank you. See you tomorrow
Hi Neil, yes he is more than welcome to come and ride at our events. All he needs to do is contact len at firstname.lastname@example.org. He will also need to sign the relevant CTT forms and have parental consent to be able to ride.
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?
Is this for mountain bikes or road bikes?
Can I join fir tomorrow level 1 cycle ride please
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?
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!
Yes I would like to join you tomorrow morning started to ride 3 weeks ago.
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.
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.
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?
Hi Danny. Yes it’s fine just to turn up. Anyone in Essex Roads kit will be happy to direct you.
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,
Hi there, are you accepting EOL for Sunday’s race?
If you contact Len via Len@essexroads.com, he will be able to advise if spaces are likely on Sunday.
I can vouch for Viva Velo. Dyll is a really good guy and their camps cater for riders of all different abilities. I’ve also booked with them for next year & am doing the Mallorca 312.
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?
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.
Hello, could you let me have details of where to send the payments to please. I want to enter my daughter into the full series.
Rob. Its best to drop an email to Dave the coach at email@example.com. Many thanks.
Well done for Sunday really well organised as always.
All members of Barking & Dagenham CC really enjoyed thereselfs.
Many thanks for the feedback Dean, great to read everyone enjoyed their racing and we hope to see you all again at the next event.
On behalf of LVYCC please pass on our thanks to the organising team. Our riders really enjoyed themselves and for some it was their first race.
Looking forward to the rest of the series and hopefully it will get warmer !!
Thanks so much for the feedback Tim, all the riders who took part seemed to enjoy the day’s racing despite the cold weather and i agree, let’s hope we get some warmer weather as the series progresses.
would this be fine for my 8 year old
Hi Robin, yes the coaching sessions will be fine for your 8 year old. I’ll email you further details on our sessions and hope to see you there.
Trying to enter but I can’t find my membership number. I’ve looked in my subscription confirmation email from British Cycling and the members area of this site. Any tip?
My son would like to race, he’s 10 yrs old, and a member of Hackney Cycling Club, and British Cycling. Membership no. 1450927
I can’t see where I sign him up for the 4th Feb races, so please can you assist me?
Many thanks for your message, i’ve sent you a PM with all the details you need for entering the event.
Hope to see you on the day.
Hello, I am a 15 year old keen road cyclist with HCC, I would love to race on 4th Feb. Do I need to apply by post to guarantee me a place or can I just turn up on the day and be able to race?
Hi Max, Thanks for getting in touch i’ve sent you details to your email address with all of the details you need for racing next Sunday. Hope to see you on the day.
Hi, hopefully this is useful… http://www.essexroads.com/how-to-obtain-your-british-cycling-membership-number/
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?
You can use your British Cycling membership number
Hope this helps
Hi can you confirm if there are spaces available for this race in the U14 boys and U10 groups?
Yes we have spaces available for both races. You will need to complete the entry forms on the day for each rider and payment on-the-line is £5.50 per rider.
Hope this helps.
My son is 12 years old and is keen to get into cycling having been to Hadleigh farm last year. How can he get onto your coaching programme?
Hi Sara, Thanks for your email and interest in our coaching programme, i have emailed you some details on the sessions which i hope are of interest.
Thank you for a great event.
All the members of Barking & Dagenham CC really loved the day.
Really enjoyable just wished it was a bit warmer.
Really Looking forward to the 25th
Hi Dean, Thanks for the great feedback again,it’s a pleasure to see so many Barking & Dagenham members taking part and doing very well. Fingers crossed for warmer weather on the 25th 🙂 Best Regards Dave
Hi, is Round 3 on the 18th or 25th February
Both dates mentioned above.
Hi Trevor, round 3 is on 25-02-18 and round 4 is on 18-03-18. I’ve spotted the error on our website and amended to show the correct Feb date. Thanks for getting in touch.
Hi Dave – will you be posting the round 2 results up at any stage?
Hi Matt, Thanks for getting in touch the results and race report for round 2 are now up on our website. Hope to see you at the next event on the 25th Feb.
I’m happy to help this Sunday (25th Feb) but sadly Laura not available
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.
Does the cancellation include the Hainault Hilly?
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
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!
Fingers crossed the weather keeps away so we can race Simon. Hope to see you Sunday
Hi Dave – at the moment are you still planning running the event tomorrow?
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.
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
Hello Philip, yes the date is this Sunday 25th March. I’ll contact Redbridge to amend and to avoid any confusion.
Thank you for a really great go ride series all the members of Barking and Dagenham CC loved it and are really looking forward to the next series.
Thanks so much for the great feedback and it was a pleasure having so many Barking & Dagenham riders taking part this series and well done to your medal and race winners on the day, look forward to seeing you at the summer events.
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?
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.
Looking to join a club I have purchased for the 1st time a road bike . Can you give me some info on how I should do this .

Just wanted to drop a note to say thanks for yesterday’s race.
It was tough, be really enjoyable and all ran very smoothly.
I am a past member of ercc and I live in Stock. This morning I was cycling past The Ship pub in West Hanningfield when I came upon a Rapha black phone/money wallet. Could you ask any of your members if it belongs to them please . My contact number is xxxxx xxxxxx. Or my home number xxxxx xxxxxx.
Many thanks and kind regards
Matt Haigh removed Tel No’s for Elaine’s privacy, contact me on here or on FB if you want them
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.
I have emailed you about this as we might be able to help.
