Exciting Biking Routes

Take your old bike for one last spin on these brilliant routes.

1. B1022/B1062: Colchester – Maldon

The B1022 is an excellent route that offers enough scenery and a fair share of bends. However, there are some side road junctions to watch out for along with double white line and limited speed sections.
 The B1062 runs parallel to the B1022 and offers a lot more scenery. You can also find a few more bends and lesser police presence.
On the whole, the route gets an above average for corners, while scenery is good 3.3 out of 5. Visibility and road surface are decent at best.

2. Harwich – Colchester – Sudbury

This route offers fair bit of corners and straights. However, it is best suited for a casual ride with plenty of stops. For starters, you have Mistley, where you can get yourself a drink or even some tasty ice cream. Then, you will be crossing Abberton Reservoir, where you can stop for some bird-watching.
However, do watch out for gravel and mud.
On the whole, the scenery is pleasant and there are a fair bit of corners to keep you interested. Visibility and Road Surface are slightly above average.

3. B1508: Colchester – Sudbury

This is probably the favourite route for most Colchester bikers. It’s pretty much a roller-coaster as there are a ton of corners and bends. But, before you reach the corners and bends, you will also be covering some extensive straights.
But, do keep an eye out for villages with 30 mph speed limits, including Bures. The locals here warn about gravel that gets washed down during the rains.
Overall, a great route with fantastic corners.

Meeting Spots for Bikers

Apart from great roads, Colchester also offers a few hangout spots that are ideal for bikers. Here are a few that you can try.

1. Bungalow Café

The Bungalow Café is located at Stanway, Colchester on London Road. As one customer puts it, the place is great for pudding and “non-fried” food. Other than that, it has an ambiance that is biker friendly with oodles of parking space. The prices are apparently quite affordable as well. You can refuel at a grage that’s right next to the café.

2. Danny’s Food Bar

Danny’s Food Bar can be found at Haven Road & King Edward Quay, Colchester. The place is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 in the morning to 3:30 in the afternoon. It is basically a food van that serves biker fare which includes exotic stuff like kangaroo burgers, spicy burgers and Parmo’s. So, you could say that this isn’t your everyday food van.
The van can also be hired for parties or events and that most definitely includes biker rallies as well.
