Extra info:                           Come and join us on the hugely popular Tour de Tendring bike ride to raise money for your chosen charity. You can cycle on one of three circular routes around the picturesque district of Tendring - perfect cycling country with quiet roads, low hills and views to the sea.  All routes start and finish in Dovercourt - the long route visits the classic seaside resort of Clacton on Sea, famous for its Pier, St Osyth, and Great Bentley which has the biggest village green in England.   The routes rejoin in Great Oakley, mentioned in the Domesday Book, before the finish where you can unwind with refreshments, entertainment, and a swimming pool!

The 6 mile family ride is mostly traffic free as it passes through the historic town of Harwich (including Britain's oldest cinema!) up to the coast, passing three lighthouses on the way back to Dovercourt. For more details and to sign up online, visit:
