Not known for its hills, the Essex 100 ride still offers up a formidable challenge due to its undulating terrain that will have you in and out the saddle. We’ve designed a route that takes you through quiet villages and farmlands where you’ll rarely see a motorist but maybe a tractor! The rolling countryside makes for a great day out.
With a choice of either a 33-mile, 65-mile or a tougher 101-mile route, you'll have a great day in the saddle with the Action Medical Research team, helping to fund vital medical research for sick and disabled babies and children. Whether you are an experienced rider aiming to get a fast time or you’re aiming to make a day of it and take in the sights, this ride is for you.
Expect excellent feed stations manned by friendly volunteers and a buffet style lunch mid-way through the ride that you will find hard to tear yourself away from! Riders will be supported by first class medical support, mechanical services and a sweep vehicle.
Many riders have experienced a RIDE 100 event, and thoroughly enjoyed the social atmosphere and return to enjoy the unique experience that we offer. Make 2013 the year that you take part in a RIDE 100 sportive! You won’t be disappointed.
