My local run and always a pleasure to come home to Thaxted from any direction after a blat. The B1051 from Thaxted to Elsenham, partly resurfaced offers lovely tarmac (in the resurfaced sections obviously) and twisties. Beware of mud on road 2m out of Thaxted from Haiges gravel depo. Mobile camera hotspots High Roding village, Dunmow, 30mph limit just after Great Easton by school.

The B184 is a great favourite with local bikers. The section between Ongar and Leaden Roding is twisty and technical (particularly around Abbess Roding). After a brief right and left on the A1060 the road continues after Leaden Roding to include a fast section up to Dunmow. From there up through Thaxted to Saffron Walden is a series of sweeping bends, with just a few sharp ones to keep you on your toes. At Dunmow and Thaxted you can also turn east to get into the area of excellent biking roads around Finchingfield.
