9.00am - Morrisons
Request destination for this week is for the Braxted Bakery via the Hanningfield loop. I would think the first group will arrive at BB from around 11:15 for those doing the shorter loop and around 11:45 if you’re continuing around the reservoir. It is going to be cold, it will feel colder so please be prepared for a cold ride. However, it looks a though it will be cloudy overnight, so frost hopefully won’t be a problem.
Please arrive at Morrisons by 9am for the 9:05 departure and make sure you and your bike are ready.
Out via Maldon Road onto Spring Lane to Does Corner and on to Ulting, Woodham Walter then up to Little Baddow (the “easy” side of North Hill), turning left along the little side road at the top and on to Danbury. Across the double A414 mini-roundabouts (PLEASE TAKE CARE HERE), turning right at the fork then right again and down the descent to Sandon; left turn over the A1114 then left into West Hanningfield Road. Turn right at the end (left for the short route direct to West Hanningfield). There are then two right then lefts to the southern side of the Reservoir to South Hanningfield and onto West Hanningfield (where the short route rejoins). Turn left and across the A130, right then left to East Hanningfield and Bicknacre. Back up the hill to Danbury, down North Hill, Crabbs Hill, Sportsmans Lane, Maldon Road and Wickham Bishops Road then left on Maldon Road heading back towards Witham then turn right on to Langford Road and left into Station Road. Through Wickham Bishops, Taking the left fork to Snows Corner. Straight across then take the next left fork (or continue to the War Memorial and turn left), down past the Green Man and turn left towards Little Braxted and down to the Braxted Bakery.
Distances are about 42 miles for the full reservoir loop and 35 miles for the shorter route.
I will post the GPx on the WhatsApp group, if you’re not a member, please ask me to join up, for general tri-related (ish) discussions and banter.
9.00am - Morrison's
Routes and distances decided on day within each group.
We are a friendly bunch with more than 200 members and our club meets at Witham Football Club on Spa Road, Witham.
We provide a good mix of training programmes, a great social environment, but most of all we give respect, support, encouragement and equality to our fellow athletes regardless of how quickly or slowly they choose to run.
Our website is full of information, but the best way to find out about our club is to come and give us a no commitment try.
