    Love the new look but the content about riding groups is very out of date and inaccurate. Will this be sorted out?

    1. Profile photo of MattMatt

      Hi Carlos. Yes, this is something we are looking to update. Feel free to email over anything you feel should be included.

    Hi Matt, how much is membership please? Family and individual. It would be great if your website had a tab on the top about membership.

    1. Profile photo of MattMatt

      Hi Scott, membership sign up is currently through british cycling and you can see all the prices here British Cycling Essex Roads.
      I agree, we should have this on the website. Will update that soon.

    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. Profile photo of MattMatt

      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”

    Hi Mark, Last year we could view other riders who had signed up for Autumn Leaves, is there a way to view the rider list this year for Spring Lambs?

  12. Stephen

    Have entered 150Km, but cannot easily locate information such as the amount of climbing over the ride. There is no interactive map to determine the max incline of climbs and their length (compare with Chiltern 100)

    I do not know the roads or area and first time on the Lambs, so this sort of info would be helpful rather than just the length of the ride.

    Also it is nigh impossible to read the cycling weekly article on your website

    If the info is there and I’ve missed it please do let me know, otherwise no reply required.

    Regards

    1. Profile photo of MattMatt

      Hi Stephen, are you aware of this link http://essexsportive.com/route-map1.html ?

  13. 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.

  14. Amy Holtby

    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.

For more information on times go to http://www.contourpilatesstudio.co.uk/timetable/ And simply email Amy with your time – amy@reformerpilatesbrentwood.co.uk

    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. Profile photo of LenLen

      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.

  16. Tom Henderson

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

    1. Profile photo of LenLen

      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.

  17. Richard Payton

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

    1. Profile photo of MattMatt

      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.

  18. Daniel Johnson

      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.

  19. Kelvin Fleuty

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

    1. Profile photo of LenLen

      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

  20. 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

      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.

    Is this for mountain bikes or road bikes?

  23. 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. Profile photo of MattMatt

      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!

  24. Paul Newbury

    Hi Matt
    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.

  25. 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.

  26. Dean Godfrey

    Hi

    Does anyone have the 150k route in strava they can forward on to me? I dont have GPS so will be using iphone.

    Thanks

    1. Profile photo of PaulPaul

      Hi Dean,

      You can convert gpx files as a route into strava using this link: http://labs.strava.com/gpx-to-route/
      Download the gpx from Essex Sportives, save into a local folder on your computer. When you open the above link, it will ask you where the file is and then will upload it and save it as a route on your account.

      Hope that helps.

      Paul

  27. 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. Profile photo of MattMatt

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

  28. 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

  29. Toby Parnell

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

    1. Profile photo of PaulPaul

      Hi Toby,

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

  30. Paul Hobdell

    I think the move would be good opportunity for the club to have a proper clubhouse where other
    Members can talk about cycling and events coming up over a cup of coffee and cake when I when out with south and wheelers and I attended the clubhouse I was quite impressed . I hope my opinion can help regards Paul Hobdell

    I would prefer to leave it as it is on Billericay High Street which is usually quiet at 9am on a Sunday morning.

  32. Ian

    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.
