    Thorpe Bay Rotary are organising a charity ride to raise money for the new Keyhole Cancer Appeal.

    Foulness island is a small island in Essex which is owned by the Ministry of Defence and used for weapons testing. It is normally not possible to visit it, but once a year there is a charity cycle ride around the island, and this year it's on 31st August. More info is in the link above.

    Register and pay here, the cost is £12.50 -­ikeride-application.html
    I have select 1pm as the start time, so meet there at the start at 1pm.

    We're probably going to get the train - 10:14 Train from Liverpool Street to Wickford (on the Southend line).

    It's a really short ride, but the appeal here is to be going somewhere where you're not normally allowed to go.

  • Fox led a ride to here two years ago, I was a fantastic place.

  • I saw this flagged up elsewhere and was contemplating..... I am almost in, just need to check other plans. And it's a nice short Shoosh-length ride ;)

  • Although be warned that time finished in Foulness in 2010

  • That would rock. I like mersea island and have done I.o.W er, 6 years running.
    Well jelly as they say. Have a great day

  • Yep, nice one Mands...two booked for 1300.....Cycling down from Corringham,via Benfleet marshes, Two tree Island, and Saaarfend seafront.......
