Want to get cycling in Essex? CTC can help!

CTC has already helped 3,000 people get cycling in North Essex - and now we're planning for more in 2013...

Three thousand people in North Essex have already re-discovered the pleasure of cycling, thanks to CTC, and now we want to get even more people cycling because we understand the benefits to health and the sheer sense of freedom that cycling brings.

We help people get back on a bike often for the first time in years or even for the first time ever. And then we help them go further. We make it relaxed and gentle, fun and sociable. So not only are you feeling healthier, you’re seeing new places and meeting new friends.

Essex 2012 Games Legacy

Twenty families and friends enjoyed a fabulous cycle ride on Saturday, organised by CTC Cycle Champions as part of the Essex 2012 Games Legacy programme.
The long line of cyclists on the Writtle cyclepath
We took the large group on a gentle traffic-free cycle ride from Chelmsford to the beautiful village of Writtle. We had glorious sunshine and great company and the Rose and Crown on Writtle Green made us, our bikes and the kids very welcome.

There is another ride this Saturday, leaving 11am from Colchester Leisure World and heading to Layer de la Haye, so invite your friends to join the fun and bring the kids.
