It is proposed to have a picnic on the beach before returning to Maldon on the mainland where it is expected to have a pub stop or tea shop break distance approx 22 miles over gently undulating back country roads and gravel tow paths as well as sea wall paths, varying terrain, not best suited to narrow rimmed wheels. Make certain your bike is in good order and fit for purpose.
