Look Mum No Hands!

Essex Adventures

Over 260 cyclists escaped London bright and early on Sunday morning to explore a sun filled (and hill lacking) Essex. Here are some of our favourite #greatescapeaudax photos.

Organised by speed demons and serious tandem owning Richard & David (pictured above), Islington Cycling Club is a friendly local club offering cycle sport for all. They offer a wide range of rides, including training rides and socially paced club runs. Forming in 2013, it now boasts over 300 members.

The buzz surrounding the 2015 Great Escape at LMNH Old Street was infectious. Cheerings the riders on in the morning and welcoming them back was a pleasure.
We're already looking forward to next year.
