Outstanding sponsorship can be sent to: Essex 100, Action Medical Research, Vincent House, Horsham, Sussex, RH12 2DP.  We really appreciate the effort that goes into raising every penny - thank you.

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.

Luke's story

Auditory processing disorder (APD)

Luke dribbled a lot as a baby, didn't babble and at two spoke just 10 proper recognisable words. This was the start of a 10 year battle as he struggled to make sense of what he was able to hear, had difficulties with speech and his self-confidence and education suffered.
