Ware’s Essex - Medium Route
This is the perfect distance for those who have had a steady season and managed to keep the miles going. With 2500 ft of climbing, it’s not the hilliest of courses and will allow those wanting to stretch their distances to do so, finishing their season on a high. Bundled with scenic views and fast, rolling countryside roads, what more could you ask for!
Ware’s Cambridge? has been one of the most talked about Sportives of last year, we’ve decided to apply some of that magic to Essex. Ware’s Essex? will take place on Sunday the 4th of October.
You asked and we delivered, many of you have written to us asking to help you explore more of the great county of Essex. The Tour de Essex and Essex Season Ender Start in greater london and work their way around, still staying relatively close to the city.
The Last Century of the Season
The Ware’s Essex Sportive covers territory never before seen on a SportiveUK event. We’ve chosen to start this ride from Ware at the fantastically located HQ of Allenburys Sports Club. From here you’ll have easy access to the countryside, heading over from the East of Hertfordshire in to the west of Essex, carving your way through the centre of the County taking in picturesque village like Finchingfield (voted one of England’s prettiest villages)! Not only that but the Autumn colours are spectacular at this time of the year. Making for a memorable ride.
Many have commented that the route map resembles a snake, like a 100 mile long serpent. This may be the last chance for you to get a 100 miles in before winter rears it’s ugly head.
Event Location: Allenburys Sports and Social Club, Priory Street , Ware , SG12 0DJ
