JOIN IN THE FUN - ESSEX IS WAITING FOR YOU

CIRCULAR RIDES AWAY FROM TOWNS, TRAFFIC AND PEOPLE.
Hi, I'm Tobe Le Taxi (TLT), and I'm the contact Monsieur for this thing. I plan the rides, run the websites and create the movies.
Essex is such a beautiful county - perfect for solex rides - it's gentle rolling hills mean that the bike comes into it's own, giving a little assistance uphill and producing moments of exhilaration on the downhill!
I invite you to take a look around the site and if you like what you see, you're welcome to join us on an expedition.
Just turn up at the grand depart (start point) and away we go riding in a Solex peloton.
This started in Jan 2016 and we have been riding regularly since then.
Next ride details are on the Next Ride Page.

THE PELOTON IS GROWING
2019 has been a good year. A premier Cru. We did lots of outings, attracted new riders and more people came on more rides. The meeting places are more familiar now and riders know what to expect from a ramble in the Essex countryside. The peloton is growing. I knew it wouldn't be easy, inviting total strangers to join me for an excursion into the wilderness, but it's happening. A superb bunch of people are slowly coming together. Great things take time. And I have a good feeling about this.
