Free, open to all and everyone welcome. The weather forecast says chilly with some sunshine. Perfect cycling weather. The ride starts at 9.30am outside the Park Life Cafe in Chumleigh Gardens (SE5 0RJ) in Burgess Park (cycle map from East Dulwich https://cycle.travel/map/journey/129745). It's a 3.5 hour loop up to the Royal Parks and back again, returning to the cafe at 1pm.

The ride will be the usual easy-paced excursion, using lots of quiet streets and paths, but with some short stretches of busy road. The plan is to go up to town via Waterloo Bridge, Covent Garden and Bloomsbury to Regents Park. There will probably be time for a coffee stop there, before going on via Marylebone to Hyde Park. The group will do a circuit of Hyde Park, (may be extending into Kensington Gardens), then down through Green Park and past Buckingham Palace and St James Park. There is segregation from Parliament Square, up Birdcage Walk, across in front of the Palace and then along Green Park and across into Hyde Park where there is a whole lot more. It's very good and well worth enjoying if you haven't already been up there.

The route back comes over Westminster Bridge, through Kennington back streets to Burgess Park. Jane will be leading and the route is at https://gb.mapometer.com/cycling/route_4989284.html.
