This ride starts from Canada Water Library in Deal Porter Square, opposite Canada Water Station, SE16 7AR. The station is on the Overground with large lifts which will take three bikes. There is flat access to the rail network at East Dulwich station and an easy change across the platform to the Overground at Peckham Rye. Or you can cycle -- it's not far (safe but wiggly. It starts at 10am and lasts two hours if you stay the whole way.
The guys are planning an easy-paced ride to the Bermondsey Street Festival. Details of the festival are on Facebook, here: [www.facebook.com
There's lots to see on the way, which starts with a long diversion around the north bank of the Thames. The group will go west along the Thames path to Tower Bridge. They will cross Tower Bridge then use pedestrian crossing to get to the slip road down to St Katherines Dock. The over the Red Bridge and through to the Hermitage Riverside Memorial Garden and on to Ivory Dock. North to Royal Mint St and Cycleway 3.
Then west to Tower Hill and via Cycleway 5 to The Monument, across London Bridge and down Borough High St to Newcomen St (Cycleway 14) and follow this to Bermondsey St to see the Festival. There will be a 20 minute stop here to look at the action and some people may want to stay.
