The rides start and finish on Monks Farm, Coles Oak Lane, Dedham and the event starts at 8am and will finish at 3pm.

It's a great event for cyclists at all levels whether you enjoy a fun family bike ride, a team building challenge or like to pedal solo.

Cycle Colchester will be supporting St Helena Hospice by offering Dr Bike free health checks and an information stall.
