Wares Cambridge has been one of the most talked about Sportives of recent years, weve decided to apply some of that magic to Essex. Wares Essex? will take place on Sunday the 6th of October.

Weve designed this route so that youll be able to take advantage of some of the great roads that the 2013 TDF took in and experience some beautifully tarmaced surfaces. Whatever the weather throws at us, this route is made for the beginning of Autumn, keeping your motivation high for the coming months.

With the autumn months fast approaching, SportiveUK have come up with the perfect way for you to get your last big bike ride on the clock. Whether it’s the Long 100 or the short 40, there’s something for everyone looking to keep those legs moving. Don’t fancy the full Essex 100 loop? There’s the medium distance of 70 miles that will take you as far as Finchingfield, you’ll be able to tuck into the home made flapjacks, cheeses and crackers. There’s even a fun 15 if you’re not quite up to the 40.

All routes start and finish at Ware, Hertfordshire, where you’ll head out North east through the picturesque villages, and then onto sweeping countryside roads of rural Essex. The fast rolling roads of the 100 will take you out towards suffolk, coming within 5 miles of the county town of Sudbury.

We do our best to try and make sure your ride on the road runs as smoothly as possible by marking the roads clearly. If you find you have not seen a marker for a while, stop and consult your map, ask someone, or find a landmark and give us a call using the number provided on the day.
