2016: March 24 - SOUTHEND

The end of the long dark winter is in sight with signs of moonlight coming into view with the inaugural Friday Night Ride to Coast of 2016: a genteel ride of about 60 miles to the seaside mecca known as Southend-on-Sea.

Date: 'Maundy' Thursday, 24th March 2016
Time: 11.30pm
Place: Wellington Arch, Hyde Park Corner 
Destination: Southend-on-Sea

Don't make the mistake of turning up at Midnight on Good Friday as you will 24 hours too late!!

Instead head for Wellington's Arch on Thursday 24th March by 11.30pm for a Midnight Start. 


Enjoy a few hours of cycling pleasure as we head East through the East End of London before arriving in the land of The Only Way is Essex. We will stop briefly at the wonders known as the Junction 31 Services for some food and hot drinks. We will then head into the beautiful Essex Country side with the intention of arriving in Southend just before 8am to enjoy a well earned Greasy Spoon. Who knows we may come across Jamie and Jimmy as they head up Southend Pier.
