Ware’s Essex - Short Route
The 40 miler is a great route for the beginner, or for those seasoned riders who just fancy an easy day in the saddle. The 1300ft of climbing will give your legs a relatively easy ride, allowing you to explore picturesque villages and enjoy the beautiful scenery that this ride takes in.
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.
