This is one of the longer rides but still just as slow-paced and easy-going. It starts at 9.30am at the Cutty Sark near the entrance to the Greenwich foot tunnel and heads south to Danson Park, Bexley. It's a round trip so riders will be back at the Cutty Sark at 1pm having covered about 19 miles.
The route includes lots of cycle path and quiet streets, but there will be some moderately busy roads as well. A pic of the route map is attached. The group will go through Greenwich Park (where pushing will be allowed), and across Blackheath to Kidbrooke. There riders will pick up Quietway 1 and follow this past Well Hall Pleasaunce, along Rochester Way to Falconwood.
Then they leave Quietway 1 and continue parallel to Rochester Way pretty much to Danson Park. There will be a coffee stop at Old Stables and then back via Welling High St, then turning south to Plumstead High St and down to last section of the Ridgeway and through to Woolwich waterfront. Finish along Thames path back to Cutty Sark.
