Wiggle Essex Explorer 2014

08/06/2014 - Essex - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

Every mile of each of the 3 route options is in the large county of Essex. Often thought of as almost an outreach of London, if you don't know Essex then you are in for some surprises. It's a very rural county with some of the most productive arable farming in the world. Most of our routes take advantage of this lovely countryside although you'll steal the occasional glance to Canary Wharf, The Shard and the city of London from time to time.

Around half of the mileage on each of the three route options uses the same roads as the 2014 Tour de France stage 3. We've used some of these very roads before in previous sportives and indeed last year's Explorer. You'll be sampling the roads 4 weeks ahead of the world's greatest cyclists and locals might be forgiven for thinking they need to check their calendars on the day.

We've got a lovely new event HQ at the Ongar Leisure Centre. All routes leave Ongar to the north and immediately swing north then west and onto more Tour de France roads. Whichever route you choose you'll head home west, once again, on the 'route du Tour'
