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!
Rolling out every Saturday and alternate Sundays, our standard club rides typically range between 70km and 160km with a pace dictated by the riders, and a strict no drop policy.
Of course, there’s always a chance for at least one coffee stop!
Coffee & Canvas
Every other Sunday we run our ever-popular Coffee & Canvas rides.
These are between 50-70km, with a relaxed pace of 20-24kmh, and always featuring a stop for a coffee and cake at one of our many favourite haunts throughout North Essex and Suffolk.
