Our rides

  • The Monuments

    Our five monuments are what the ColVelo calendar revolves around every year. Kicking off with the 243km Ronde Van Anglia in early April and finishing in August with the 220km East Anglian Echapee, we offer monthly rides totalling over 1250km.

    These are truly epic!

    The Monuments
  • Club Rides

    Rolling out every Saturday, our standard club rides typically range between 70km and 160km with a pace around 28kmh but dictated by the riders, and a strict no drop policy.

    Of course, there’s always a chance for at least one coffee stop!

    Club Rides
  • Coffee & Canvas

    Every Sunday we run our ever-popular Coffee & Canvas rides.

    These are between 50-70km, with a relaxed pace of 24kmh, and always featuring a stop for a coffee and cake at one of our many favourite haunts throughout North Essex and Suffolk.
