Cycle Steps
Starting off close to Sandford Lock outside Chelmsford, followed the towpath all the way to Heybridge Basin. Quite bumpy where it hadn't rained for days. Made one wrong turning just outside of Maldon where it wasn't obvious which way to go. My first ride in over 20 years in a leisurely 2.5 hours.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Paper Mill Lock made a welcome refreshment halt both ways with teas, coffees etc and excellent home made cakes.
