This cycle ride starts from one of England's leading yachting centres, Burnham on Crouch. From here the route heads north to explore the Dengie Peninsula, situated between the Rivers Blackwater and Crouch. Here, under a backcloth of sky, saltmarsh and water are weather-boarded villages and tiny sailing hamlets. Much of the countryside was reclaimed by man from the sea and today is internationally renowned for its wildlife. Along this route you can take a ride on a real steam train, visit the Saxon church of St Peter and try the local oysters at Burnham.
