“Would and should be better”
Reviewed 17 March 2013 via mobile

This cycle track is excellent until it reaches the 'shared space' area then it is 'every man for himself '

If Southend Council really want to achieve excellence surely continuing the cycle path in the middle is crucial.

The path is great but the 'non track' middle section is rather ridiculous.

“A great way to see the estuary coastline!”
Reviewed 30 June 2012

The cycle lanes run from Chalkwell to Shoebury (apart from at Southend seafront, but you can walk this bit or go on to the road) & are a great way of seeing the coastline. There are cafes/ restaurants along the route so we always stop for an ice cream & drink. I would thoroughly recommend this activity especially on a sunny day! For anyone visiting Southend by train, both train lines let bikes on at off peak times. I think the distance is roughly 6 miles.
