Twenty families and friends enjoyed a fabulous cycle ride on Saturday, organised by CTC Cycle Champions as part of the Essex 2012 Games Legacy programme.
The long line of cyclists on the Writtle cyclepath
We took the large group on a gentle traffic-free cycle ride from Chelmsford to the beautiful village of Writtle. We had glorious sunshine and great company and the Rose and Crown on Writtle Green made us, our bikes and the kids very welcome.

There is another ride this Saturday, leaving 11am from Colchester Leisure World and heading to Layer de la Haye, so invite your friends to join the fun and bring the kids.

We lead rides from Colchester Leisure World at 11am every Wednesday and on the first and third Saturdays of the month and we've got a nice evening cycle ride to a country pub next Tuesday 7pm, (the regular first Tuesday of the month).
Our led cycle rides are gentle, relaxed and sociable and we always welcome anyone who hasn't been on a bike for a while, if at all. And it's all free."
