  • I'm from chelmsford braintree area and was wondering if anyone else rides here and fancys a ride.

    Awight?
    Largin' it!
    Bangin'
    Guvnuh

    No my dear sir, I am not from the location you refer to as Essex.

  • I should of said north essex, more suffolk really. init

  • Just round t'corner

  • I notice suffolk CTC are riding to Sudbury (from Ipswich) this sunday. I think you'd need gears on one of their 'hard rides' though. I've been meaning to join one of their rides for ages, cos I stay in east suffolk regularly, but never seem to get there.

    cheers

    really where do you hail from

  • Melbourne :)

  • Ha!

  • ilford - Im in between

  • I'm from near Gt Dunmow but based in London now. Should get out there more - some great riding country out from Thaxted and Bardfield towards Yeldham and beyond.

    And fuck the Suffolk thing. It's North West Essex and proud. :)

  • I grew up in Dunmow (age 6-18), and went to school in Chelmsford. It was fucking hellish.

    Having said that, I still get the odd ride in round those parts. Only last week I did a 100 miler (geared) from Old St, out through Ongar, the Rodings, Dunmow; turned left at Thaxted, went across to Pelham, and then wound my way back down to London through Manuden, Stansted Abbots, blah.

  • Melbourne :)

    in the getto! I ride though there on my way home from my girls house when i'm feeling brave!

    I'm a Suffolk boy by birth but find myself in London for university.. Currently back home and took part in the Dunwich Dynamo the other week, went within a couple of miles of my village..

    Also, as for the CTC someone else mentioned, I'll probably give it a look, I've been craving a ride with other people as none of my friends cycle so I mostly go around on my own..

  • Essex and proud. Big up the Braintree boyz

  • The Braintree boyz are just wannabe Theydon Bois.

  • Wanstead Woodford out of Walthamstow and Buckhurst Hill. Ride Central every day

  • Braintree too here, hence in part the screen-name . . . . . . . suppose this is where i am required to to go....'init, er yer guv n all tha' .......or some such local lingo !!!
    Thaxted, Stebbing and around are great rides to be had, or you could go 'proppa' hairy and tackle downtown Chelmsford, (most of you guys would not require to open eyes for this etc) snore snore LOL

    I'm a Theydon Boi, just wanna be... anything else really. I don't live there any more though.

  • east london, then Baaaaaaaasssssssiiiiiiddddddddoooooon!!!­!!! home of the white stilletto's ;)

    Went to school in Chelmsford - when I've ridden through there any time recently, it's seemed like such a small town. Well, it always did, but in a different way...

    I rode the bumpy lanes between Stebbing and Dunmow more times than I care to remember when I was a kid - always leaving Stebbing too late (and too hungry), and having to ride myself into the ground to get back home quick enough to avoid getting whacked. Do I put a :) or a :( after this sentence? Fuck knows. I'm confused. Aaaaargh, it's like being a fucking pre-pubescent in Essex again :S I need to go somewhere - ANYWHERE!!!

  • Anyone from Essex still around here?

    I'm near Rainham.

  • Hi,

    I'm from Colchester and there are a few of us who ride fixed, single sped etc.

    You can drop me a line here if you feel like meeting up?

    rickylasers@gmail.com

    Take care and hope to hear from you soon.

    All the best,

    Richard

  • Fixed gear in Colchester? Sweet, I'll have to drop you a line when I'm next down there. I grew up there, London now. Would be well up for a Colchester alley cat!

  • Im from Chelmsford, living in London now though. Colchesters nice, wouldn't mind doing a ride out there, could stop off on the way back and see me parents!
