Challenging rides on the road for adults only

If you’ve been riding a road bike for a while, and perhaps been thinking about joining a cycling club, these rides – brand new for 2012 – are for you. The prospect of a speedy pace over twenty to fifty miles, and the strong likelihood of some hills thrown in along the way, means our Ride Strong Plus rides are not for the faint-hearted.

Come and join us on this great 26 mile route as we escape the city and head for the Essex countryside.  Starting and finishing at Seven Kings, we loop out past the M25 towards Weald Park. There are some hills to negotiate on the way and some great fast stretches and rural lanes. The route is harder than the profile looks, especially if there is a strong northerly wind blowing, it's quite a challenge!

If you've already tried one of our Ride Strong Plus rides and you're ready for the next challenge, why not try a British Cycling Sportive?
