It's here! - the new Wiggle Essex Explorer from KILOTOGO. There's some great countryside to explore by bike right on north-east London's doorstep. Heading out from the Brentwood HQ and you might not think you're not so far from the hurly-burly of the City of London. Lord Sugar, Mark Cavendish and Ford Europe all have homes right here in rural Essex.

Essex sometimes gets a funny sort of press and we're here to dispel some of the myths and show that Essex has got some great cycling - quiet lanes, good surfaces, and pretty villages with weatherboard cottages - a characteristic of rural Essex.

Why you must ride 'Wiggle Essex Explorer'! - Whether you opt for the 40 mile short route, the 74 mile medium route or the 'full-on' 96 mile long route, you're in for quite a treat as we take you through some of the prettiest and quietest parts of mid-Essex. Medium and long route riders adopt much of the same route - certainly early on. At 8 miles in the first notable village is passed. Stock, with it's windmill, sits perched on a heath 300 feet up. Essex doesn't get much higher than that. At 30 miles in it's feed station time with our drinks and munchies just near the village of Woodham Walter. Ploughing on through the village of Pleshey with it's large motte and baily castle ruins, it's then on to the Easters and the Rodings. In fact, it's just after High Easter where medium riders will turn right whilst linger riders loop south to our feedstation near Writtle and back to the Rodings via Blackmore and Willingale. Meanwhile short option riders will have already passed through Blackmore village as it's only a few miles from the start. All routes will have converged before the feed station at Moreton and it's a steady 16 or so miles via South weald Common on to the finish.
