Starting point

E20 3AB

BOOM! That’s right – we’re heading to the White Water Centre, Waltham Abbey.

‘It's in my roots, it's in my veins
It's in my blood and I stain
every heart that I use to heal the pain
So I blame it on the River Lea…’

- this ride is so good that Adele even made a song about it!

Relatively flat and at a leisurely pace, this ride welcomes all abilities, but please note the 24 mile distance.

This off-road ride is mostly on riverside tracks with 60% being on non-tarmac surfaces with embedded gravel and some loose surface grit that may be unsuitable for bikes with skinny road tyres.

There is also a feeder ride starting from Gants Hill at 8.45am.

All participants are expected to bring:
• A bike in good working order with tyres pumped to the correct pressure. If in doubt, have it checked over by a local bike shop or qualified mechanic.
• A cycle helmet
• Carry at least a spare inner tube, pump and tyre levers.
• A cycle lock for use on the refreshment stop.
• Anti-viral precautions per NHS advice.
• Dress for the expected weather on the day.
• A drink and snack/cash (we have a coffee stop).
