The Stansted Airport Express
No. 2 of the ACME Winter Series: a trip to West Essex, passing Hatfield Forest & Stansted Airport; back via Thaxted. Wetherspoons start & finish with an excellent cyclists' café control at Thremhall Park 52km
The official start & arrivee is The Battesford Court Wetherspoons pub in Newland Street, good location for breakfast before and post ride refreshments. Arrivée instant brevet validation.
Taking it steady there's tea & cake elevenses at Abberton Reservoir Visitor Centre and/or early lunch in Maldon and afternoon cake in Stock.
Faster riders could get to the Stock cafe control for lunch. Maldon would be an ideal lunch stop opportunity if ECE'ing to 200k with 50 already in the bank at Witham.
There will be car parking available at The Labour Hall, Collingwood Road CM8 2EE. A £1 donation to be collected on the day which represents excellent value for money for all day parking in Witham.
