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 38 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.

Action DIVA Essex NEW for 2014 - The Essex 100 includes our special promotion to get more women cycling. If you are new to cycling then there will be a route to suit you. Tick the I’m a DIVA box when you enter.

Monroe's story

Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC)

Monroe and Tate were born early to mum Sophia Kotzamanis at 33 weeks. What was to come was devastating. One week later, Monroe tragically died as a result of necrotising enterocolitis (NEC).
