Just Ride Southend to Manchester… One Month To Go!

A team of volunteers at Just Ride Southend have taken on the mammoth challenge of cycling from Southend to Manchester in a day! They have all been putting in loads of hard work and training over the last couple of months.

Simply Cycling (www.simply-cycling.org) were our inspiration and mentors from the very beginning (2014). It is safe to say we have had an incredible journey over the last 5 years. We would like to celebrate our 5th and their 15th birthday this year.

We are completing the 250 miles cycle in one day as a relay team. If we use all the daylight hours we would need to average 15mph to achieve our goal. Not Tour de France speeds but still a very real challenge on roads that are open to traffic.

We will hopefully arrive in Manchester in time to celebrate before a well earned rest and a return journey by minibus and van the next day.

Our number will include three tandems as well as solo riders. The tandems will include an all female bike, a visually impaired rider and one of our trustees who has Cerebral Palsy.

We are all very excited to rise and ride to the challenge. Thank you all so much for your support.

SATURDAY 27/04/2019.

⚠️💨⚠️WEATHER WARNING ⚠️💨⚠️
There will be no Just Ride tomorrow as the Met Office have announced a yellow weather warning. We feel it would be unsafe to ride tomorrow. 
We will be back as usual next week Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday.

If you have been down to the track lately you have probably noticed the work that has been completed recently.
There is now a bench outside the container where you can enjoy a well earned rest! Directly behind the seating area is a bed for plants/flowers.
There is also a new path that provides easier access to the containers, allowing volunteers to manoeuvre bikes with more ease.
A massive thank you to PR Construct for doing such a brilliant job!👍
