Chelmsford City Informal Member Group

We are an enthusiastic, friendly and well-supported local group with a regular programme of 'Sunday runs' led by experienced leaders. These are all day rides at a comfortable touring pace with regular refreshment stops for 'elevenses' in the morning, lunch (usually at a village pub) and a 'threeses' stop in the afternoon. Our routes use the extensive and often overlooked network of beautiful and quiet country lanes and byways, avoiding the main roads almost entirely.

See our blog for more about our group and regular articles and ride reports from our membership.
