We have received a lovely review from one of our guests, Katie, who enjoyed a cycle ride using our hire bikes followed by lunch at The Pier, and we couldn’t wait to share it with you.

Katie wrote: “There is no better way to see Essex in its true glory than a leisurely cycle ride between Milsoms and The Pier. Finding our way through winding country roads, beautiful villages and alongside the River Stour all the way to Harwich was a memorable experience.

“We turned up in the morning to find the bikes waiting for us at Milsoms, fully equipped and ready to go. After some interesting detours, amazing views and a fair amount of sweat we arrived in Harwich. The service at The Pier was impeccable. We were given a table on the balcony overlooking the port, greeted by some very welcome cold drinks followed by fish and chips.

“After a very hearty lunch we decided to take the train from Harwich to Manningtree, followed by a final 6 mile cycle back to Milsoms. Overall it was an incredible experience that I would recommend to anyone visiting the area.”

If you’re interested in hiring bikes for a similar adventure, or just to explore the local area, please get in touch with the team at Milsoms who will be happy to help. To find out more about The Pier in Harwich, visit The Pier’s webpage.
