messagesociable cycle ride Sat October 12th starts 10am
Posted by Sally Eva October 10, 07:32AM

This ride starts from Deal Porter Square(SE16 7AR) which is opposite Canada Water.It's a flat 9.5 miles using lots of dedicated cycle path and well worth learning if you would like to cycle up to central London in safety. Canada Water Station has a lift which takes three bikes at once and is on the Overground. It's accessible from East Dulwich Station (flat access), changing trains to the Overground across the platform in Peckham Rye.

This will be the usual easy-paced, two-hour ride. Riders will head to the river then follow the Thames Path/Cycleway 14 to Dockhead. The plan is to cross Tower Bridge, where traffic is very slow and tightly controlled, and join Cycleway 3 and ride this all the way to Westminster Bridge. The group will cross Westminster bridge and start back along the Thames Path past the London Eye.

They will stop at the South Bank to admire the view, and then cycle along to Blackfriars Bridge, where they will turn south on Cycleway 6. Quite soon turn left on to Cycleway 14 and ride this all the way back, joining the outward route at Dockhead. The route map is here: []
