Epping Road Ride:
Epping is well known to urban dwellers as an antidote to the city buzz, with it's beautiful ancient woodland it is clear to see why. This weekend's ride will leave you feeling fulfilled and refreshed.
Leaving the event centre in Epping, we skirt around the town before heading into the countryside and miles of open roads. It’s quite a surprise how many quiet lanes can be found just outside the M25 and to remind you where you are, we cross the motorway so you can feel smug looking at all those tin cans sitting on the tarmac as you pedal off with the wind in your hair! The level 2 grading of this course means that there are no major hills on this route - it's just a blast through the Hainault and Epping forest roads and it will be a great workout!
