    By the looks of where the bike was in the road, it looked as if the cyclist on the bike had just join the Esplanade from Thorpe Hall Rd. there is no cycle path that can be used to do this. You can't join the cycle path on the Esplanade from the junction as there are beds with Palm trees in them to make a divide for some reason. You would have to use the road heading west for a way until you could get on the cycle path if you wanted to use it.
    Exactly, no joined up cyclepaths in too many areas, see my other comments, along with no joined up thinking by the d- mwi-s in Southend council.

A BICYCLE rider has been injured after being involved in a crash with a bus in Thorpe Bay.

Paramedics were called out at 10.45am to the incident which happened on Thorpe Esplanade at the junction with Thorpe Hall Avenue.

The incident happened after a bus and cyclist collided.

Treatment was given to the male bike rider at the scene with a police spokeswoman saying his injuries are thought "not to be serious".
