This ride starts at 10am and finishes two hours later at Canada Water Library (Deal porter Square, opposite Canada Water Station, SE16 7AR). There's a good lift at Canada Water Station which takes three bikes at a time and is on the Overground. No lift at all at Peckham Rye just lots of horrible steps. But the platforms are walk-on, walk-off at East Dulwich which has a good connection to the Overground at Peckham Rye. Of course you can cycle to the start. It's not far and very quiet.
This is one of the usual easy-paced two-hour rides on mostly quiet streets and paths. The plan is to ride from Canada Water to Greenwich via the Thameside cycle path and cross via the Foot Tunnel by the Cutty Sark. Then to Trinity BW via Mudchute Park and Canary Wharf. Trinity Buoy Wharf bills itself as "Docklands most exciting arts quarter" and is nevertheless very nice. Lots of history and (my favourite) the Fat Boys Diner (see pic).
The route back follows CS3, crosses at Tower Bridge and takes the usual Thameside route to Canada Water. Amanda will be leading. Everyone welcome. I haven't got the route, sorry.
