- Finchingfield Route - Downloadable map + guide
- Chelmsford Route - Downloadable map + guide
- Bures Route - Downloadable map + guide
- Blackmore Route - Downloadable map + guide
- Abberton Reservoir Route - Downloadable map + guide
NO RACING, only group tempo riding until the mid point (marked*) on the map. Timings are approximate, but group not to leave the identified pick-up points more than five minutes earlier than the stated times. If twelve or more riders, then divide into two groups, to reassemble at the mid point. Wait for mechanical problems / punctures before the mid point. These are training rides, not club runs, so will ride tempo / fast, not to match the speed of the slowest riders. Please carry map / food / spare tubes etc in case you are dropped and have to fend for yourselves. There is no designated person in charge, these are informal but structured runs undertaken at the sole responsibility of the individuals participating, likewise there is no liability attached to Maldon & District Cycling Club whatsoever.
