    Hi,
    I'm based in Leigh on sea and looking to join a club or form a group for social / club rides. I wondered if anyone was a member of any local clubs. I'm not against going outside of the area, billericay, Basildon, Chelmsford at a push.
    Thanks in advance.
    Dan

    Names I've come across (New Years Resolution this year is to join a club after the hockey season):

    Leigh Riders - weekly meetup, Sundays 8.00 top of Beach Avenue (according to a Strava discussion, at least)
    Rochford Mumbai Cycling - I see these guys n gals hammering along the seafront on Tuesday evenings. Never actually considered the name until this very moment... is there a Mumbai curry house in Rochford?
    Southend Wheelers - a more formal club than the 2 groups above, I think
    Essex Roads CC ride out from around Billericay iirc, as does the Yellow Jersey Cycles group


    I'll be very interested in any first-hand knowledge replies, as I live just by Belfairs so am in exactly the same boat! :smile:

    @Specialeyes resurecting this thread from quite some time back! Did you get involved in a club? I haven't due to a number of reasons but now back and would like to find a club to ride with mainly on Sunday's early mornings and maybe a mid-week shorter ride.

    I did the New Year's Resolution part but not the local club part! The early Sunday and midweek shorter ride sounds perfect though, so count me in too :smile:

    Okay, great. I'll ask on one of the Facebook groups and let you know if there is anything :-)

    I'm just near the 127 round the corner from Belfairs so not far at all!

    Just stumbled across this post. I'm also in leigh, by belfairs and the a127 and am looking for some sort of club. I'm in there most nights around 8pm. Did you manage to find any local clubs?

    Hi, small world. I'm down near the 127 where the furniture store is opposite big yellow. I haven't had chance these last few days. I've been heading out about 7.30 on a Sunday so I can sneak a couple of hours in before the little one is up and about.

    Maybe we should sneak a mid week ride in as we are all so local!
