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.

For more about our group please see our website.

Hythe to Dungeness

11th June, 2017

Meet 9:15 am at Military Road, Hythe, CT21.

We will have an early cafe stop at the railway cafe before setting off following the Royal Military Canal before moving onto very quiet roads and work our way across Romney Marsh going through Ivychurch, Brenzett, Brookland, Lydd to end up at the Britannia Inn for lunch. After lunch we ride along the seafront to New Romney station watching out for small trains along the way. From New Romney we travel inland and work our way across to Donkey Street where we take in a cream tea before returning to our cars. Total distance 50/55 miles on very flat terrain.

Email the SEG Secretary, John Steer, if you are planning to attend so cafes and pubs can be informed of numbers.

New for 2017

Wednesday at 10.15 am for a 10:30 am start from Rettendon (BHN Garden Centre) for an informal mid-week ride to either a cafe or pub for lunch.
