Social Ride Around Canvey Island

Canvey Island Cyclists

The recreation group had their first ride for the 2011 season around Canvey Island on Saturday 16th April.
The group met at Benfleet Station Car park and rode a circular, mostly ‘off road’ route around the sea wall. The total distance covered was approx. 12/14 miles.
It was a fine sunny spring morning, there was a high tide and the 12 participants enjoyed fine views of Hadleigh Downs and the Thames Estuary.
A stop was made on Canvey Seafront where the group were able to soak up the early spring sunshine and enjoy the refreshments.
On the return journey to Benfleet Station a visit was also made to the newly opened RSPB bird sanctuary at West Canvey Marsh.
