Southwark Cyclists are leading a ride to the London Freecycle which is a brilliant opportunity to get the whole family together to experience the fun and freedom of cycling on traffic-free roads in central London. Itís part of a festival of cycling led by the Mayor of London. You don't have to have kids. You can just come. [www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk
Our feeder ride starts at 10am outside the cafe in Peckham Rye Park. Residents will already be well aware that the cafe is closed for renovations. But nevertheless that's where we are meeting. The postcode is SE15 3UA. In better news the new playground beside the cafe is open for action and sometimes there is a coffee van.
The ride has set off surprisingly punctually in the past. Itís slow because I am glad to say that lots of kids come. There will be a pick up point under Peckham Arch near the Pulse and the Library if that suits you better and another at 10.30am by the Park Life Cafe in Burgess Park. The official address of the cafe is 3 Chumleigh St, SE5 0RJ. Another way of thinking about it is that it is beside the big playground just off the Albany Road and has lots of toddler-sized fountains outside it.
This (by now very large) group will join the Freecycle route at Southwark Bridge and there will be a ride back to Peckham from there at 3pm. It's all led by Werner and a squad of highly trained marshals to keep everyone safe. They will be using Quietway 1 which is a gem.
It's all free. You don't need to register or pay. We are the borough branch of the London Cycling Campaign which campaigns for safer cycling in London. Everything we do is free. Our website is here: [southwarkcyclists.org.uk
