Today we set out from Rob and Chris,s by bike heading out to the coast.

Essex is flat rolling land with lots of small woods I and farmers fields.

There are trails between all the woods and tracks all through them.

R&C have a good knowledge of their area so we were able to cover of about 15k of trails with out any major roads.

The trails are good fun with lots of little bits and pieces to ride on and over.

Looks like they would get muddy in the winter. We then made our way to Leigh on Sea looking for a advertised beer festival. 

What we found was a small gathering in a local hall.

We did not stay as there was no where to keep the bikes so we made our way doe to old Leigh.

 We collared a guy riding past on a On One fatty and dragged it into shot.  We lucked in as the pub sold Brew Dog punk by the glass

We then made our way home back through the woods heading for home.

 

 Bugger. Chris had one of those not even riding little tumbles that resulted in 2 broken bones in her left ankle. A trip to A&E and a leg in plaster the result.
