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

For 16 July we have two Southwark Healthy Rides, one short and one longer, with registration on Eventbrite. If you cannot make it, please cancel so that someone else can take the place. Even at the last minute it is worth cancelling (How to cancel). Note the weather forecast for Saturday promises 30 degree plus temperatures. Please dress appropriately, lather on the sun cream and bring plenty drink. By following this advice can have an enjoyable ride despite any high temperatures.

Reminder that we often have photos and short reports on the Facebook site (https://www.facebook.com/groups/553896211918871) and longer reports and route info on the Southwark Cyclists web site (https://southwarkcyclists.org.uk/health ... orts-2022/)

Rides for July 16th

Some Theatres in Southwark & Lambeth < https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/some-the ... 3036752237 >

Jane is leading a ride we did once before, on 29th March 2019 (see report at http://healthyrider.weebly.com/healthy- ... h2019.html) This is a gentle approx. 12 mile ride with lots of stops, so should suit the very warm forecast. Start/finish at the Fuorvito Café, Burgess Park (Chumleigh St). 10 am start, approx. 12 noon finish. Mostly on quiet streets with some stretches of busier road. Will try to post an updated list of theatres and an indication of the likely route later in the week. It will not be massively different from last time, so you can get a good idea from the ride report from 2019 mentioned above. No coffee stop during the ride, but of course can have one at the finish in the park café.

Greenwich to Woolwich via Trinity Buoy Wharf < https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/greenwic ... 3071084927 >

Start/finish Cutty Sark, 9.30am. NOTE EARLY START. Amanda leading and aiming to finish around 1pm. We subtitled this ride the last time we did it in 2018 “The New, The Old and The Derelict”. There is now less of the derelict and more of the new and the route has to change to reflect this.. This week the tunnel lifts are all working, but if we have problems can divert to the DLR (so bring travel cards or whatever just in case). There is so much of interest in the East London Docklands. Route will be Greenwich Tunnel, Canary Wharf, Trinity Buoy Wharf, Thames Barrier Park, Connaught Bridge, City Airport, Woolwich Ferry (if running) and south side Thames Path return. About 15 miles. For those of you who have not visited Trinity Buoy Wharf, try to get on this ride. May be hard as those who have been there will want to return! Completely unique site with 2 decent cafes and some interesting art. Plus the history related to Trinity House and Michael Faraday.

Have checked the route and updated the theatres. See attached. Note that it is likely that this ride will take 2½ hours and finish at 12.30 rather than 12 noon as previously stated. Finish will be at Mountview Academy, Peckham Square. We will lead a group back to the start location in Burgess Park for anyone going that way.
