The Tour De Essex

The Tour de Essex Sportive will take place on Sunday the 29th of June 2014.

Tour_De_France_Essex_Sportive2014 is a unique year for the County of Essex and for all who cycle on her. The third stage of the Tour will head through many of the wonderfully road bike friendly roads that we at SportiveUK cycle on a regular basis.

The Tour De Essex features a 42, 72, and 112 mile choice of routes that utilise many of the same spectacular roads as the Tour de France. Only you’ll be getting on them first, just think, when you watch the opening stages of Le Tour a couple of weeks later, you’ll be able to say to yourself, ‘I was there’!

Online Entry

Online pre-entry allows you to get this event in your diary and is the easiest way to secure your place. Numbers are limited for this event and you will be saving yourself an admin fee if you enter on-line rather than paying on the day. On-line pre-entry will also allow you to turn up on the day and just collect your entry pack without the hassle of filling in forms, registering and queuing up.

We may have to close registration on the day if the event reaches its capacity so it is best to pre enter on-line to avoid disappointment.

42 Miles
This is a great route for the beginner or someone entering their first sportive. Anyone looking to get involved in the Essex Season Ender and hasn’t quite got the legs for the longer rides, this is for you.

72 Miles
The 72 mile route  will take you further out onto the quiet countryside roads of Essex towards picturesque villages and well kept roads. The stunning route with few, but rewarding hills creates more of a challenge for those looking to feel the burn in their legs.

Enter Now

112 Miles
If you are looking to experience anything close to the distances those in the peloton encounter on a daily basis then this is the route for you. We’ve not pulled any punches with this route, its tough and should only be attempted by those who really want a challenge. You’ll still see some fantastic countryside but boy, will it be a test of your endurance and stamina.
