The flat roads of Burnham and the surrounding area makes this a good place for cycling, but there is, currently, a lack of cycle paths.

It is an absolute joy to cycle out on Marsh Road (by Saint Mary’s Road) – but it is no longer possible to cycle to Southminster via this route due to gates blocking the way.

It is also an adventure to strike out along the seawall towards the sea or upriver to Fambridge – but PLEASE give pedestrians the right of way, preferably by dismounting.

Obviously, as a Council, we recommend all riders wear helmets and protective gear.

There is a BMX track in the Riverside Park. Click here to learn about the BMX Project.
