Greenwich to Danson Park.

10am to 1.30pm. Start finish at Cutty Sark, near the tunnel entrance. Eva leading. This is quite a long (18 miles) ride for us with significant short hills (550 feet total climbing). Starts though Greenwich Park then across to cycle paths and quiet streets that parallel the A2, passing on the way the Well Hall Pleasaunce. Leaves the A2 route at Wendover Way and reaches Danson Park from Danson Lane. Coffee break at the really lovely Fleur de Th? in Danson House. Return uses mostly LCN routes to Woolwich Arsenal via Plumstead Common. There joins the Thames path and follows this back to Cutty Sark.

This is Bike Week. Try a Healthy Ride tomorrow - Saturday 11th June.
We have 2 rides. One is fully subscribed already, but there is lots of space on the Round the Parks romp from Peckham through, amongst others, Burgess, Ruskin and Dulwich Parks. Register at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/southwar ... 4671109837. Or just turn up at the last minute. Ideal for anyone you want to persuade out on their bike. Just 2 hours, no big hills, lots of lovely paths in the parks.
And a nice forecast, warm, dry, plenty sunshine.
Cheers,
Bruce
Southwark Cyclists Healthy Rides Co-ordinator
