In order to cater for more people, I will now be riding on a Saturday or on a Sunday. Hopefully this will fit in more with everybody's busy lives and attract more riders.
WHAT'S YOURS CALLED?
April 6th 2019
What's your Solex called?
I received a message today from my friend and fellow Solex rider David 'Bowser Bill' Lindy. During the message he revealed that his bike was called 'Yvette' and that his previous Solex was also called a French female name - 'Maria'. I started to think what I would call the bike I ride and have decide on the french name for 'free one' Fannie!
'What's yours called' is going to be a lot of fun!! - Let me know what your bike is called? French female names of course. In the spirit of Le Solex!!
Below are Agnes and Fannie
2018- THE PELOTON IS GROWING
November 25th 2018
It has been a good year. A premier Cru. We did lots of outings, gained new riders and more people came on more rides. The peloton is growing. I knew it would be a slow growth. The routes are more familiar now and riders know what to expect from a 30 mile circular ramble in the Essex countryside. There is the beginnings of something special here and I thank everyone for risking the first time they came along. 2019 is not too far ahead. Although rides don't start until around May. See you then. TLT
THE TURBO RETURNS
February 14th 2019
HOT NEWS - RUMOUR HAS IT that the Turbo will return to ride in 2019. All being well she will start the first ride and WOWZA you should see her fly!
Tanya is the most delightful of ladies and is great fun to have in the peloton. I welcome her back and if she brings along her world famous chocolate brownie cake we will all be in for a treat.
2019 - NEW RIDERS WELCOME
December 5th 2018
Are you looking at all this and thinking?...They do look like they are having a lot of fun. A bunch of eccentrics riding vintage french machines around the Essex outback. I'd like some of that! Well it's easy to join in. Just show up at the start of a ride and we will make you feel included and equal straight away.
So, see you at the Grand Depart!

FLY THE FLAG - FOR FREE!
FREE - JUST ASK FOR ONE
These laminated rigid flags with our logo on look great and are free. They measure about 20cm x 15cm. Just ask and I'll make you one up. Pick up from Tobe 'le taxi' when you next come for a ride. You'll have to get your own flag pole though.
In may, we attended the 70th anniversary of Velosolex in Holland event. In the region of 650 bikes attempted to make the longest 'nose to tail' line for a new world record.
