2019 Canewdon Closures

Canewdon Village Hall will be closed a few times this year, but fear-not, here are some suggestions for a leisure / training ride if you are not riding or marshalling the event in question. Remember, if you are going to watch a time trial or road-race, ride in the opposite direction to the racers. Racers are generally riding anti-clockwise so that they only encounter left turns - if you are riding the course, do so in the opposite direction and give encouragement to the racers. Always ask a marshall if you are unsure.

Sunday 10th February - Burnham & Baddow Cycle Challenge
All club members asked to support this event; a choice of unsupported 25mile or 60 mile routes from East Hanningfield to the Dengie peninsular.

Sunday 9th June - Southend Wheelers Road Race Championships, Hog Hill
In 2018 we return to Hog Hill for the Championship Race, Novice Race, Ladies Race and other events that have included elimination, relay and tandem races in the past. Event is open to club members only.

Sunday 30th June - Norman Wells Open 50The event HQ is Steeple Village Hall. The riders compete in an anticlockwise direction from Steeple to Latchingdon to Ashedham and back to Steeple. If you are riding out from Battlesbridge / Woodham Ferrers please ride straight to Steeple from Latchingdon so that you are travelling in the opposite direction to the racers. Please do not drive to Steeple due to lack of parking. There will a "red-style" ride to Steeple, meeting at The Hawk, Battlesbridge at 9am

tbc July - Track Championship, Herne Hill
The track championship continues at Herne Hill with it's novice friendly 22 banking and 400m track. Track bikes are available at the circuit.

tbc September - Championship 25 Mile Trial, Steeple
Like most time trials, this is based at Steeple village hall. A pleasant ride from Battlesbridge via Radar Hill and Stow Maries. If you are riding over to support the event, please don't ride on the course in the same direction as the athletes; from the mini-roundabout at Latchingdon, continue directly up the main road to Steeple, cheering the racers as they pass you on the other side of the road.

Sunday 20th October - Club Hill Climb, Little Baddow
Some, if not all, of the the ride out to Little Baddow features most weeks for the 9am riders but if you are riding the Hill Climb then the ride out is a good warm up and if you are just going out to watch (or marshall) then the ride out is equally enjoyable.

tbc October - AHM, Paglesham Village Hall
Today's club rides will finish at Paglesham Village Hall for the Annual General Meeting (club members only)

Sunday 15th December - Christmas Pudding Time Trial and Lunch
Surely you will all be riding the event, but if not the ride out to Steeple on a crisp winter's morning is delightful. And if you find that you have eaten too much pudding or drunk too much wine at the dinner afterwards, you can always get a train home from Southminster (though do check that engineering work hasn't turned your train into a bus)
