You have found the site for The Randonneurs Road Club
We are a group of road cyclists who meet regularly to enjoy road cycling and one another's company.

Some, not all, are retired, but we are mostly over 50.

We cycle for pleasure, we may have raced in the past, but no longer.


What, when where?

We meet every Wednesday and Sunday.

We meet under the clock tower in Coggeshall, Essex, at 09.00.

We cycle all year round except when there is ice on the roads.

Where do we go? How far, how fast?

We are blessed in North Essex by having almost unlimited miles of leafy lanes stretching up into Suffolk across to Herts and South and East to the Essex coastline.

We usually cycle 35 to 50 miles, sometimes more but allways stop for tea or coffee somewhere nice. We have a list of almost 30 local cafes. That gives plenty of choice and a wide variety of routes.

We average 12 to 14 mph.

Two happy Randonneurs
