.Cycling at the sea side: Thorpe-le-Soken to Walton-on-Naze 23miles Aug 24, 2019 The originally planned cycle ride from Witham to Hythe has been put back to Sunday 1st September when the weather should hopefully be a bit cooler. Instead we are cycling to the sea-side on both Saturday and Monday! Opportunities for paddling in the sea on both rides. The replacement cycle ride for this Saturday will go from Thorpe-le-Soken to Walton-on-Naze and the Monday cycle ride will now go from Herne Bay to Ramsgate Thorpe-le-Soken to Walton-on-Naze Saturday 24th Auguest We cycle out of Thorpe-le Soken going past st Andrew's church then south to St Osyth and then hit the coast at Seawick and we follow Cycle Route 150 through Clacton and Frinton to Walton on the Naze. We will probably have lunch in Clacton, probably the toby carvery by the sea: https://www.tobycarvery.co.uk/restaurants/east-of-england/clactononseaessex.html. We could stop for afternoon tea further along the route as well. When we get to Walton we can dismount and explore the Naze nature reserve, admire the views and perhaps go up to the top of the old sea mark tower. http://www.nazetower.co.uk/tower_gallery.html. There is a cafe near the tower which does coffees and icecreams. We will see several Martello Towers along the route.
