This ride starts in Canada Water opposite the Tube station. There are lifts at Canada Water Station and walk-on access to the rail system at East Dulwich Station. Take the train to Peckham Rye Station, stay on the same platform (platform 2) and take the Overground heading east towards Dalston Junction. Get off before you get there. There's a map of the same journey by bike here: https://cycle.travel/map/journey/131783. I recommend cycle.travel for route-finding. It's very friendly and little technical know-how is required.

Right, back to the ride. This starts at 10am from Deal Porter Square, opposite Canada Water Station, SE16 7AR and lasts two hours. It's an easy paced ride along the Thames cycle path heading east to see how far we can all get before turning back. The Thames path is now all open again after building work. It includes some of the best cycle track you will ever see, but also some very narrow bits. We hope to get to the Ecology Park.

Our route joins the Thames Path at Greenland Passage and runs past the Cutty Sark and on round the peninsula. It returns across the peninsula to the blue bridge over the A102, rejoining the Thames Path briefly at Enderby Wharf and continuing through the Naval College and back past Cutty Sark. For final stretch riders will turn inland at the Deptford Creek foot bridge and follow Cycleway 1 for a mile before crossing to the Surrey Canal Linear Park, round the top of Greenland Dock back to Canada Water. There's lots to see on this flat route. The route map is here:

    • Looking for a white kallax unit 2 x 4 if anyone is getting rid of one. Thanks. 
    • As it isn't law yet to microchip a cat (becomes law in June this year) then whisking off a cat with no microchip to get neutered and rehomed may well be taking someone's pet.  There was a proposal on here recently to "rescue" big ginger who looks in a bad way but actually has a living home and is being well cared for.  So before whipping him off to whip them off, make 100% sure he is a stray. 
    • I am curious dulwich dweller, as someone who claims to regularly use a bus you seem to be arguing for their reduction based on the fact that we aren't packing them in like cattle. Maybe that's the issue, covid has made people reluctant to use packed buses and by reducing them so they are fuller, some would say over full, then it both becomes harder to find space and discourages people from using them. 🤔  Whilst an empty bus is seen inefficient financially by some, it may well encourage more people to use it as they'll don't feel like cattle going for slaughter.  Or do you think that we need the Japanese pushers to pack more people into buses. ?   
    • The honest truth is a perception?
