Close your cycling event season with the Essex 100, a stunning ride through the North Essex countryside
Our Essex 100 charity cycling sportive is one of our most popular rides attracting over 700 riders. You can enjoy some excellent cycling terrain on this bike ride raising funds for vital research for sick babies and children. Three route options take you on a journey through quiet villages and the farmlands of Essex where the undulations will have you in and out of the saddle.
The Essex 100 offers a Cool 37 mile route that is ideal if you’re new to cycling or haven’t had time to train! The Classic 68 mile route is more challenging as is the Champion at 104 miles - ideal if you’re an experienced Sportive rider.
Expect a great day in the saddle with the Action Medical Research team on this cycling event with first class support throughout the day.
