Jam Factory Ride
A medium paced 50mile ride around the Essex lanes culminating in a visit to the tearooms at the famous Tiptree jam factory.
Suitable for all bikes, completely on road, mostly on small country lanes. Rolling terrain but no serious long climbs, no-one left behind! Lunch in Maldon and afternoon tea in Tiptree. There may be the option for an extra 10miles at the end for the super keen, depending on the time and the weather.
Meet at 9am at Liverpool street station outside the ticket office for a 9.15 train to Chelmsford (return tickets to Witham). Expected return to Liverpool street around 6pm. Return tickets cost £16.80 (£8.40 with groupsave tickets).

Upcoming rides & events
Our rides are highlighted by "RIDE". You don't have to be a member to join in and we're also always looking for new ride ideas. Contact our Rides Co-ordinator for further information.
There is no need to register beforehand for a ride unless this is specifically stated, most rides are "turn up and go".
Please note that for train assisted rides we often cannot publish times until about 2 weeks beforehand because of the need to check engineering works. Also sometimes our ride leaders do have to change dates/times/routes at reasonably short notice. Generally this website will be up to date and also details will be sent out to our email groups, but if in doubt contact the ride leader or our rides co-ordinator to check arrangements.
