Colchester Group

We organise led cycle rides from Colchester every Sunday and we welcome you to join us. Our rides have two breaks for refreshments: elevenses at a cafe or nursery, and lunch usually at a pub (the destination). Routes are mostly along quiet country lanes where we can best enjoy the fine countryside there is around Colchester.

The Colchester Group meets every Sunday from outside the main entrance to Leisure World in Cowdray Ave, Colchester CO1 1YH. In British Summer Time all rides meet at 8:45 am to leave at 9:00 am, unless otherwise stated.

Contact: Alan Palmer.

For those wishing to go at a steadier pace, Alan will be leading ‘Easy Rider’ type rides, sometimes using the same elevenses and lunch destination as listed below.
