Southeast Essex Informal Member Group

Our group, affectionately referred to as 'SEG' (Southeast Essex Group), makes the most of its rural location as a base for leisurely Sunday rides. This is not an exclusive group. There is no competition. Our members have a wide range of abilities, ages and a balance of men and women. We make a point to take care of less experienced or fit members and will not abandon you with a puncture in the middle of nowhere.

Viking Trail Kent

7th October, 2018

Meet 9:15 am at Le Cafe Creme, 86 Station Road, Birchington, Kent, CT7 9RA. After breakfast we will drive a short distance to Minnis Bay, park and unload the bikes and set off along the seafront. The ride is about 30/35 miles in total with some interesting sights and is a totally different ride our normal Sunday ride.

From Minns Bay we ride along the promenade then going up and down the cliffs as required by the route passing through Margate, Broad Stairs, and Ramsgate. Lunch will hopefully be taken at the Sir Stanley Gray pub at Pegwell Bay, then its on to Cliffs end, Minster, St Nicholas-at-Wade before cutting across the marsh on a Sutrans route to the Reculver and back to Minns Bay.

Email the SEG Secretary, John Steer, or give him a call (01702 529638) if you are planning to attend.

Club Night

St Lawrence and All Saints Church Hall, Eastwoodbury Lane, Eastwood, SS2 6UY

We meet at 8 pm and close the meeting at 10 pm on the dates below. Tea, coffee, and biscuits are normally on the menu unless someone brings in the cakes.

What do we do at our meetings, as a cycling club we obviously talk about bikes and cycling, tours and maintenance, which we sometimes carry out at our club nights.

On occasions one of our members puts on a film show which could be about vintage bikes/cycling or about some of our weekends away, or cycling events or just general cycling, but this doesn't mean we don't talk about other things going on in the world and Essex. Some have been heard to talk about their cars or about sailing or caravan holidays!

We have a variation of Sunday rides in and around Essex with the odd away day rides in Suffolk, Kent, Isle of Thanet, London, plus there are events put on by other clubs/groups that we take part in during the year.

For further information contact John Steer 01702 529638.
