Cycle Steps
Pleasant 20+ mile road route, that is mainly on quieter country and urban roads, apart from first mile and last 3 miles. Also, if anyone tells you Essex is flat get them to ride this route with you.
You will see many other riders between Orsett and Horndon on the Hill on a Sunday morning (although most seem to be going in the opposite direction. That may just be because all of the ones going in my direction are going at the same pace as me, so I never see them).
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Plenty of pubs

Also for a bit of a challenge add in the hill from Horndon up to Langdon Hills (very steep and very long - a real leg burner). Then turn right just past St Marys church at Langdon Hill, and go down towards Basildon. Take a right onto One Tree Hill for a ride through the country park. Follow through to Corringham, then turn round and come back. To get back to Langdon Hills you have to ride (or walk) up the hills you have just come down. I still find it a bit of a killer.
