Healthy Ride, Saturday 12th December ? Cutty Sark to the Thames Barrier

The ride starts at the Cutty Sark in Greenwich and goes to the Thames Barrier and back. Don't worry if you don't know how to get there. There's a feeder ride at 9.30am from Deal Porter Square opposite Canada Water station. And Canada Water station, which has a lift taking three bikes, is on a direct line to Peckham Rye.

This is a two hour ride starting at 10am from the Cutty Sark, next to the Greenwich Foot Tunnel SE10 9HT. Simon will be leading. It's an easy ride, almost entirely off road. Out and back by the same route. The probable route is at

NOTE ? You must book on Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/cutty-sark-to-thames-barrier-southwark-cyclists-healthy-ride-tickets-131781236225so that we can limit numbers. If you cannot make it, please cancel so that someone else can take the place. Even at the last minute it is worth cancelling.

We will keep everyone as safe as possible by observing all the Covid Regulations. We need to split the ride into groups of 6. The groups should not mix during the event. Your "ticket" will indicate which group you are in. Please keep in these groups at the start and throughout the ride. Each group will have a Group Leader whose instructions you should obey.

It is important that we maintain a 2m social distance, never less than 1m. Particularly important to maintain social distancing from other users on shared paths, i.e. on most of this ride. Always give way to pedestrians and to other cyclists so all path users can maintain 1-2 m and feel safe. Riders are instructed to bring face masks in case there is an incident where wearing a mask would be appropriate.

Please do not turn up to this event if you are displaying symptoms of Covid-19. The safety of our volunteers and participants is key to us.

We may contact you after the ride to ask you about your experiences and will let you know more ways to sign up to information from the London Cycling Campaign

These rides are organised by Southwark Cyclists, the borough branch of the London Cycling Campaign. More information at https://southwarkcyclists.org.uk/healthy-rides/

    • Another recommendation for Sebastian at Bastek. He completely redid our family bathroom and transformed it into such a beautiful space. He is methodical in his work, really pays attention to detail and gives clear, considered advice.  As well as fitting the new bathroom suite so carefully, he did a fabulous job with the tiling, painting and finishes. An added bonus was the great communication and tidiness! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and hope to involve him in future projects. He's on 07947 751333 and is really responsive on WhatsApp. 
    • thanks! i was thinking how to create the spiked things myself as have seen some online but expensive once you calculate how much you need!
    • Suggest you get come Correx eg from an old estate agents sign and cut it into 50mm wide strips. Then get some carpet tacks (15mm long)  Push the carpet tacks into and through the Correx at 25mm intervals so that the sharp ends stick upwards. Then attach the strip to the top of your fence where it is lowest. It  doesnt injure them. It just makes it uncomfortable for them and they soon learn.
    • At sue , do you think the people of southwark or even the UK on their own can solve all of the environmental problems in the world on our own ? And putting garden waste into a brown bin is going to solve the environmental  problems of the world ? I do my bit for the environment by doing my recycling and driving a electric van , southwark council are causing more pollution by having LTNs and causing the traffic jams and vehicles to idle, believe me iam all for the environment but I'm afraid what happens to the earth in 200 , 500 or one thousand years from now is not my concern , I need to makesure that I can keep myself and my family alive now the same as many other people who are finding it difficult to pay for food and pay their Bills,  so I'm afraid I will be putting my garden waste into MY green bin which I pay for via my council tax and save my £80 which would help pay for my electric of gas or food ..  Also heard that council may only be collecting green and blue bins once a month,  not confirmed but just hear say at the moment ...
