Spin To The Blue Egg In Essex On A London Group Ride!
The Blue Egg has become 'famous' in London cycling circles as the go to cafe stop for pros like Alex Dowsett and Mark Cavendish. Back in the day these two could often be seen sipping an espresso at the Essex institution, so ever since it's been a bit of a pilgrimage for London cyclists.
As much to do with the cafe itself as the lovely, quiet Essex lanes tat lead you there and back. Cycling in Essex is a joyful experience of mostly traffic free rolling roads. Starting at Look Mum No Hands in Old Street, we'll ride East into Essex, stop for coffee and cake before looping back to LMNH for food/drinks and bike chat.
This ride will have 2 speed groups - an 'Orange' group and a 'Yellow' group, with a 'no drop' policy (no one gets left behind) in both. This means it is open to novice riders upwards, but due to the length of this route (140km) we wouldn't recommend this ride to complete beginners. If you're new to cycling/group riding or you're unsure about your level, please email or message us for a chat (click link below).
