Essex CTC is part of Cycling UK (formerly Cyclists’ Touring Club), the national cycling charity, catering for more than 70,000 members nationwide, and 1,600 across Essex. The Essex CTC Member Group has four subsidiary Member Groups, or “sections”: Chelmsford City (Informal), Colchester (Informal), Havering, and Southeast Essex (Informal).
Coronavirus update 15 September 2020
Following the steady relaxation of government rules the Essex CTC decided to stop the organisation of Sunday rides on an informal basis and reintroduce runs lists with named destinations as practiced before the lock-down. These are published on this website under each Member Group.
The Government’s ‘Rule of 6’ announcement of 12 September has no immediate implications for our ride activities except that all cyclists riding together must not form a group larger than 6 people. If more than 6 cyclists arrive at the start of a ride then two or more sub-groups must be formed each consisting of 6 or fewer riders. Caution must be practiced at the start and at cafes/pubs during the day to ensure that there is no mixing between the sub-groups.
