Healthy Ride, Saturday 19th December

Canada Water, Greenwich, Tower Bridge Loop ? Southwark Healthy Ride

NOTE ? You must book on Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/canada-water-greenwich-tower-bridge-loop-southwark-healthy-ride-tickets-133072069141so that we can limit numbers.

the ride starts and finishes in Deal Porter Square, which is opposite Canada Water Station, next to Canada Water library, SE16 7AR. Canada Water station is accessible from East Dulwich where there is walk-on access with a bike. Change across the platform at Peckham Rye (no stairs) on to the Overground. There's a lift at Canada Water station which takes three bikes.

10am start, 12 noon finish. Easy 10 mile loop using Greenwich Foot Tunnel and Tower Bridge. No hills, mostly off road or quiet streets. Tower Bridge can be busy, but strict 20 mph and no awkward side turnings, so not as bad as people think. Lots to see always on the river. Jamie leading.

If you've booked but 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" (coded red, green or blue) 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. Particularly important to maintain social distancing from other users on shared paths, i.e. on much of this ride. Always give way to pedestrians and to other cyclists so all path users can maintain 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.

These rides are run by Southwark Cyclists and we are the borough branch of the London Cyclist Campaign. Our website is here: https://southwarkcyclists.org.uk/. 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. For more info you can follow us on Twitter @southwarkcycle, email [email protected] or DM me on the forum.

    • We lost a beloved toy fox on lordship lane, Saturday 2nd march in the afternoon. He has cute green overalls. Was hand knitted and a special gift. If anyone happened to pick him up, we’d be very grateful for his safe return!  Imogen  07791842153.
    • I hope you never run into the last character eating chicken on my bus-he was an older guy, and when he'd finished his food, removed his dentures and picked them clean 😗 I'm still getting over it!
    • We once chose a decorator based on a long history of good reviews on here. It didn’t occur to us that he would ‘outsource’ the work to someone else who did a pretty poor job. Lesson learned. Always check that the person with the good reviews will be actually doing the work.
    • Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT Group but is obliged under regulation to act even-handedly with BT UK and all other of its wholesale customers - that is that all companies supplying services through the Openreach local Network must be treated similarly - so BT Retail has no better, or hopefully worse, access to Openreach as does any other competing company. Openreach has 'passed' much of East Dulwich with fibre to the premises (FTTP) capability.  BT is rebranding all its Retail services to 'EE' (that is, services to private/ residential customers) and I believe to SMEs as well. It is keeping the BT brand as a marketing name for its Major Business business. The maximum speed for FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) services is about 60-70MG to the household router - which is described I believe by some estate agents as superfast, curiously. The real FTTP services in ED are at the moment 500 or 1000MG to the router, and broadly achieve quite close to that, although speeds to the apparatus via WiFi are much less. To get actual benefit of the fibre speed you will need an ethernet network internally.
