Group Facilitator: Jenny Versey
The cycling group meets twice a month for about two hours of reasonably easy cycling, between 10-20 miles, and avoiding main roads as much as possible. Expect a few 'undulations', unavoidable in this part of the world. Over the course of the year we cover most of the area around Dunmow. Usually we meet at Dunmow Tesco or the Library, so that there is parking for those bringing bikes on the car to the start point. Occasionally we meet outside of Dunmow, e.g. Takeley, Hatfield Broad Oak and Stebbing, so that we can ride a bit further out.
Please wear cycle helmets and high visibility clothing and bring along a drink. We try to have a coffee shop break if possible .
We welcome new members.
Members of the group have agreed not to cycle if it is pouring with rain, very windy or the roads are icy or flooded. After all, we hope to enjoy ourselves! The group leader will email all members a day or two before the ride to confirm whether or not the weather is OK and where to meet.
Provisional dates below. CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
Please note that due to coronavirus all group rides are cancelled until further notice. However, whilst you are still allowed to cycle, it is excellent exercise and gets you out further along the back routes than walking will!
However, be careful to avoid potholes and other hazards and have a safe journey
