Romford Cycling Club and Havering Tri members joined forces for the London to Southend bike ride


Romford Cycling Club and Havering Tri joined forces to take on the London to Southend bike ride at the weekend.

The event has become a firm fixture on the calendar for both local clubs, given them the chance to ride with one another.

The ride has two options – one being approximately 52 miles and the other around 65 miles, with a number of people taking part.

Seasoned cyclists, those completing their first sportives, some riding as a personal challenge and some for charity all achieve the same result once they reach Priory Park in Southend.

Everyone from both clubs had great rides, with the women, in particular, producing some great results as Lisa Thake, Laura Homer and Lee Dale all finished inside the top four among female entrants.
