This ride starts with a train journey but putting your bike on a train is easy at East Dulwich station. Not so easy at Peckham Rye. The ride leader is suggesting 10am at Deal Porter Square close to Canada Water station as the main meeting place and that has step-free access to the trains with excellent capacious lifts which take 3 bikes at a time.
Alternatively meet the group at 10.30am Haggerston station on the Overground. I've just checked and the Overground seems to be working next Saturday but probably best to check again before setting out. From East Dulwich change to the Overground at Peckham Rye to avoid steps, it's just across the platform.
The ride back from Haggerston is worth all this effort and travels back via Regents Canal towpath, Victoria Park, Mile End Park, Limehouse Basin, Wapping riverside, St Katherines Dock and Tower Bridge. Riders should be back at Canada Water by 12 noon. This is the usual easy-paced ride on mostly off road paths and the route is at [goo.gl
