Canada Water to St James Park

Our sightseeing ride, led by Tour Guide Simon! Start time 10am. Start/finish in Deal Porter Square, opposite Canada Water station, SE16 7AR. Easy, 10 mile, 2 hour, flat ride from Canada Water. Route goes across London Bridge and passes Parliament Square, St James Park, Buckingham Palace and starts back across Westminster Bridge. Outward using much of Cycleway 3 along the Embankment. Return keeping to the south side of the river. Along Lower Marsh, The Cut, then mostly C14 - Union Street, Newcomen St, Weston St, Leathermarket St, Tanner St, Tooley St, Dockhead, ending with Thames path route back to CW. Although we are on some busy roads, mostly have a cycle lane or bus lane.

Greenwich, Canary Wharf, Trinity Buoy Wharf, Barrier Park Loop

Fascinating ride through river and dock side East London with Amanda leading. About 15 miles, 3.5 hours, including coffee break. Meet at Greenwich Station (SE10 8JQ), 9.30 to get DLR train to Mudchute (bring face mask and travel pass). OR meet at tunnel exit at Island Gardens (E14 3PS) at 9.45 (for people happy to carry bikes down/up steps at Greenwich Foot Tunnel, or who can ride directly to Island Gardens). Aim is to finish at Cutty Sark at approx. 1pm. Trinity Buoy Wharf (https://www.trinitybuoywharf.com/) has the Faraday Shed, a tree on a taxi on a Caf?, a lighthouse and more. If you have never visited, this is your chance. Barrier Park on the north bank gives terrific views of, you guessed it, the Thames Flood Barrier. Return route probably via Woolwich Ferry and the Thames Path. Last ridden June 12th this year, see photos on June 15 post on Healthy Riders Facebook group. NOTE earlier than usual start time of 9.30.

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. Obviously please do not turn up to this event if you are displaying symptoms of Covid-19.

This ride is organised by Southwark Cyclists and is part of a regular programme of Saturday rides, more information at https://southwarkcyclists.org.uk/healthy-rides/. Southwark Cyclists are part of the London Cycling Campaign. This ride is organised by volunteers. If you have any feedback, good or bad, please get in touch with [email protected].
