Starting point


Meeting at Belfairs Woodland Centre, we'll ride on the roads through Leigh to get down to the seafront at the bottom of Chalkwell Avenue. From here we'll ride along the cycle path to Southend, up round the back of the town centre and down Victoria Avenue to join the Prittlebrook cycle path. At the end of the Prittlebrook we will return to Belfairs for a drink (and a toasted teacake if you'd like!!!)

There is some parking at Belfairs (no charge) for those who are driving to the start.

We start by riding along at the seafront and then around the back of the town centre and along the Prittlebrook to finish at Belfairs Woods. Please note that this ride does not start and finish at the same place. If you are driving to the start, it is probably best to park at Chalkwell Park and ride down Chalkwell Avenue to the start. It is then a short cycle from the end of the ride back to your car.

Most of this route is on designated cycle paths which are separate from the road. We use a short section of quiet road to come up from the seafront.

We are not intending to stop along the way, but will finish at the Visitor Centre at Belfairs Woods (where they do very nice toasted teacakes!)

Bring a bike lock and some money if you are intending to stay on for a drink at the end of the ride.

First-timers welcome!
