Part of the Bikeathon route goes along Mess Road in Shoebury Garison.

They have fitted Speed Bumps along the road.

If you are going to cycle down the road please reduce your speed.

Top professional cyclist Alex Dowsett said:
"I have lost count of the number of helmets I have shattered in falls from bikes.
They are absolutely essential for all cycle users but still you see many people riding without them."
