Colne Valley Cycle Ride

Colne Valley Cycle Ride for Essex & Herts Air Ambulance


Unfortunately we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel this event because of the low number of entries.

We realise you will be disappointed by this news, but hope you will understand that our decision was taken after long and careful thought.

Regardless of how many entries an event such as this receives, the same number of Staff and Volunteers are needed to make sure it is safely marshalled. Given the low number of pre-registered riders, we could not justify the expense and effort that would be required on the day.


For registered participants looking to take on the challenge in their own time, please download the following files to take part in your own time.

The 20 mile and 50 mile routes are on the roads surrounding Earls Colne. The 50 mile course travels through Great Yeldham, heading towards Finchingfield. The route will continue towards Braintree and back up through to Halstead to rejoin the route back to Earls Colne. The 3 mile family friendly route is based around the Earls Colne Business Park.

If you are looking for a challenge, the 50 mile route leads nicely onto the 20 mile route – creating a 70 mile challenge!

Each participant will receive a medal after completing the ride.
