We have the ride for you! The Essex Season Ender takes place on Sunday the 17th of November 2019, covering roads that can be thoroughly enjoyed at any time of year. We’ve worked hard to take this route through some beautiful countryside that can be enjoyed by all, at the same time minimising junctions and crossings so that all you fast people can get a real rhythm going.

Essex Season Ender routes

The Essex Season Ender offers two stunning routes that head out North East from Redbridge Cycling Centre onto quiet rolling countryside roads. Both routes take in beautiful scenery that is extremely popular amongst local cyclists due to the variety of terrain on offer – both routes take on hills such as Hoe Lane, as well as offering flatter sections for those looking to get their average speed up.

  • Did the 42 Mile Route in 2019

    I was mostly impressed in how well it course was sign posted. For beginners I felt getting that countdown and encouragement 10 and 5 miles to go was really great.

    Medals? We’re we supposed to get one? Wasn’t sure as I had to leave quicker than I had liked. Were there any?

  • Did the 42 Mile Route in 2019

    This was my first sportive and I really enjoyed it. The only thing I would say is having a medal on completion would have been a nice touch.
