This clockwise 26 km bike ride is on a flat well-marked trail along the sea wall that protects the island. Much of the route follows the creeks through the peaceful green marshes of the north and along the glistening bird-filled mudflats that are exposed at low tide in the south. A colourful section along the seawall of the Thames, with its art-deco café and murals, is followed by a fascinating insight into the island’s petrochemical heritage and Britain’s first nature reserve for bugs at Canvey Wick.
