Cyclists and Horses
Please see this important Poster.
We’ve also had communication from Sustrans asking us to be understanding in the way we interact with horses ridden on the counties roads. In full recognition and agreement Essex Roads Cycling Club has developed a protocol for its riders to follow so as to reduce the risk of horses becoming frightened by passing cyclists. If you are an Essex Roads Member then please read the Sustrans Code of Conduct and follow our ERCC protocol for passing horses on Essex roads.

. . . . . and we are still welcoming new members :-

Have you ever thought just how you might start cycling with a club? Did you know that every Sunday we organise four types of rides: novice, touring, club and training rides so you can pick the distance and speed to suit you best - then graduate to the next group up as you get fitter. We even do early-bird rides on a Sunday starting at sun rise. Everything is possible with Essex Roads!

And we don’t just cycle on-road, we go off-road riding too. Practically every other Saturday we organise off-road rides in all parts of our beautiful county. We also organise off-road and on-road trips and endurance rides. You can experience this too with Essex Roads!

Are you a youngster who is keen to take up cycling – we are a registered British Cycling Go-ride club and can start you off in the right direction.

Are you a more mature rider and have waited long enough to achieve your cycling ambitions – many of our riders are in their 60’s and 70’s and cycle every week!
Are you a lady cyclist – we have many lady members in our club, and families too. All these things are possible with Essex Roads!

How about taking part in a time trial – a race against the clock like they do in the Tour de France? We organise weekly events of this type from April all the way through to August. Have you thought about competing in national time trials along with riders from other clubs – our members take part in many ECCA events each year.

Ever thought of riding a sportive . How about developing your fitness in the dry over the winter – every Wednesday we hold a winter turbo training class right through from October to March to develop your core fitness and cycling techniques. This is happening with Essex Roads!

And in 2014 we are going even further! We’re introducing more member benefits so that you can save even more on your cycling by becoming a member of our rapidly expanding club – we increased our membership last year to well over 300 club members! We are working on developing more events and expanding our portfolio of activities to appeal to even more cyclists. Above all, we are turning into a cycling club for everyone. Come and meet us and we will turn you into the cyclist you want to become!
