Calendar Events

1 December 2018 — The Stansted Airport Express 100 >

A fun winter 100km event with not much in the way of climbing, but usually accompanied by a bitter headwind in parts.  A trip to a café just off the end of the Stansted runway.  Starts from Witham.

[9 March — The Horsepower 100 & 200 — PBP Qualifier 200 >][19-389]

A good and rolling early-season 200 from Great Dunmow in Essex.  A mix of quieter B roads with some lovely lanes in Suffolk and Norfolk. Commercial controls with food at the start and finish included in the entry fee.  A week earlier this year, so a good partner to riding the Pork Pie as well!

This ride is ideal to extend to 300 by ECEing from Cambridge, or even extend to 320km for that first double-Imperial-century of the season.

18 May 2019 — The Flatlands 600 — PBP Qualifier >

Possibly the flattest ride out of Essex, with only 2,500m of climbing concentrated in the first and last 50km, The Flatlands 600 is a perennial favourite.  It's looking likely that this will be a well-populated ride, as it's the most obvious 600km PBP qualifier in the East Anglian region.

22 June 2019 — Fenland Friends 600 — PBP Qualifier >

Possibly the flattest ride out of Essex, with only 2,500m of climbing concentrated in the first and last 50km, but in the opposite direction to the original Flatlands, the Fenland Friends is run on the same day as Yorkshire Via Essex 600 and riders can expect to pass each other twice during the event.  These two events will be last-gasp 600km qualifiers for PBP, so likely to be quite busy.
