- MTB Olympics this weekend – who's going?
Chipps, what kind of pub?
Some nice ones in Old Leigh (The Billet would be my choice), short walk from station, if you want a bit more life then Leigh Broadway is a short walk uphill from the old town.
Not much in Hadleigh, maybe the Woodmans I think it is, posh nosh too, but Rayleigh has some nice pubs, Paul Pry is OK, some others in the high street but not sure what theyre like.Posted 5 years agoTiRedMember
Going both days. Sat with the boys and mrs dj. Boys should be wearing their Team GB cycling Jerseys.
Sunday I’m going with either Son1 or someone more deserving, as I only have two tickets.
As for kids tickets… I think it is only the PRICE that is different as my canoe tickets say nothing about being childrens. Don’t think the MTB ones do either.Posted 5 years ago
Apologies if someone’s started a similar thread, but I couldn’t see one.
So, who’s going on which day then? I’ve got a ticket for Saturday, but not Sunday. I’m going to be in the ‘unaccredited media’ coffee and wifi room that Essex County Council have kindly set up for us lot.
Hope to bump into some of you lot in there on Saturday though. And I’ll be hanging out by the (school) gates on the Sunday as you all go in. I’ll happily accept Tweets and texts from the men’s event too. 🙂Posted 5 years agoEvesieMember
Me & MrsE are there on the Saturday for the womens event, we are only a few miles away so will be pedalling there. Sadly no tickets for Sunday though – if anyone has any spares we are open to any offers tho…. Where are all the peeps staying that are travelling down? The area is lacking in any campsites apart from the Olympics only site just outside Basildon. I’d second Old Leigh for any refreshments needed in the evenings. Come & enjoy sunny Essex everyone & find out that it’s not flat!Posted 5 years ago
Theres a pub right next door to the Premier Inn… The Weir, its a Harvester.
Best bet from there & walkable is the Woodmans, take the Rayleigh road towards Hadleigh and its next to 2 mini roundabouts, decent scoff too but quiet, or the other direction toward Rayleigh is the Paul Pry cheaper grub.
Or just get a Taxi to Leigh.Posted 5 years agoEvesieMember
If you are bringing a bike – Premier Inn is a 10 minute pedal to Hadleigh if you want to avoid the expected queues, there’s a few nice twiddly bits of woodland singletrack in the area too if you want to take a longer route. Paul Pry pub is a few minutes walk up toward Rayleigh.Posted 5 years agolondon_ladyMember
