JOIN THE ORCHIDCYCLE


Orchid, the UK’s male cancer charity and Essex Roads Cycling Club is calling on Essex cyclists of all ages and abilities to sign up to this year’s OrchidCycle Essex on Sunday 10th June.

The route starts and finishes in Billericay, with participants cycling through the beautiful Essex countryside. At the end of the ride, there will be a BBQ, beer tent and family entertainment to. There’s also a children’s GoRide cycling event in the park for bike skills and safety.

With four routes available, the ride is suitable for people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels:

  • The 20 and 40 mile routes are fully signposted and marshalled
  • The 75 mile route is fully signposted
  • The 100 mile ride is a fully signposted and timed Sportive for the experienced distance cyclist

Ben Brewerton who took part last year said: “The OrchidCycle Essex ride is a great day out and the choice of routes means that it is ideal for cyclists and families. All four routes are well planned with lots of quiet country roads and it’s a great way to enjoy the Essex scenery whilst raising money for male cancer.”

Last year, OrchidCycle saw over 640 cyclists raise a total of £37,000.

The 100 and 75 mile rides begin at 8.00am and the 20 and 40 miles at 9.00 a.m. Entrance fees, including booking free are £15 for 20, 40 and 75 mile rides and £6 for children under 16. It is £25 including booking fee for the 100 mile sportive (adults only).
