Rides for 30th October

NOTE. You must register on Eventbrite so we can limit numbers, links below.

For Sat 30th Oct we have one 2-hour ride (ride 1) and one 3-hour ride (Ride 2) planned. When you register on Eventbrite, link details below, please give a phone number as it may be needed for Track and Trace. If you cannot make it, please cancel so that someone else can take the place.

Southwark Flood Risk Cycle Ride

Ride1 Start/finish in Peckham Square , next to Peckham Library and Peckham Pulse Leisure Centre. 10am start. Simon S. in his role as Climate Safe Streets champion for Southwark Cyclists is planning a ride to highlight the risk of flooding in London, something that will increase with global warming. Route will go between the river and the projected 2030 flood line. Still working on the exact route, but we plan to go past the Soviet tank at Stompie Garden. Will be about 10miles, 2 hours and will as usual try to ride as much as possible on quiet streets and paths.

Ride 2

Cutty Sark to Beckenham Place Park

Start/finish at Cutty Sark, next to the Foot Tunnel entrance. Start 10am. Approx. 3 hours. 14 miles, so nice easy pace. Bill leading. Out and back ride using lots of National Route 21, including the Waterlink Way, from Deptford to Bell Green. This is one of the nicest routes in London, nearly all off road and flat. The Mansion at Beckenham Place Park is impressive. The improvements to the Homestead include a new Caf?, so we will have a coffee break there.

We will keep everyone as safe as possible by observing all the Covid Regulations. Even with the relaxation of the rules it is still a good idea to routinely keep a 2m social distance, never less than 1m. Particularly important to maintain social distancing from other users on shared paths. Always give way to pedestrians and to other cyclists so all path users can maintain 1-2 m and feel safe. Bring a face mask as it is required to get refreshments at a caf? stop and on the DLR and the Airline. Please do not turn up to this event if you are displaying symptoms of Covid-19.

These rides are arranged and led by Bruce Lynn and friends on behalf of Southwark Cyclists. We are the borough branch of the London Cycling Campaign. Our website is here: [southwarkcyclists.org.uk] and the LCC website is here: [www.lcc.org.uk]. Like everything we do the rides are free and open to everyone. For more info text Bruce on 07729 279 945 or DM me. I won't know but I should be able to find out.
