This week we have two rides. Remember you should register on Eventbrite, details below. 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).
Ride 1. Ride to SITC (Sculpture in the City) < https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/cycle-ri ... 4706777597 >
This ride is an exploration of the outdoor art exhibition in the City of London - Sculpture in the City (https://www.sculptureinthecity.org.uk/), starting and finishing at Cutty Sark. Start time 10am. Will we like the sculptures or will we just shrug our shoulders? Art enthusiasts may want to download the free Bloomberg Connect guide to the SITC exhibits (https://www.bloombergconnects.org/features/). We can guess which sculpture merits the description “its horizontal configuration opposes veneration and pomposity through its prosaic absurdity”. There will be a competition to come up with your own description of one of the sculptures which sounds most as if it were part of the official guide - the winner will get a free COFFEE & CAKE! This ride will be lead by Eva, and including a coffee break is likely to take ca 3 hours.
Ride 2. Peckham to Shooters Hill < https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/peckham- ... 4693217037 >
Typical easy-paced Southwark Cyclists Healthy Ride. Aim is to get to Severndroog Castle on top of Shooters Hill. Start time 9.30 (note earlier than usual time). Start/finish Peckham Square (Peckham library, Peckham Pulse Leisure Centre, SE15 5RY). Duration 3.5 hours including refreshment break. Outward route uses bus lanes on busy A202 and A2 to Deptford Bridge. Then off road and quiet roads to Eltham Well Hall via Lewisham and Kidbrooke Village. Brief stop in Well Hall Pleasaunce to prepare for the summit ascent. Make a short ride through the foothills to the southwest corner of Jack Wood, then the steep (but short) path up to Severndroog Castle. Plenty of time to just walk up - really steep section only 300m long. Fast return route using initially busy Shooters Hill Road, then the underpass at the Sun in the Sands roundabout and quiet streets to Greenwich Park. Whiz down the hill in the park and more quiet streets to Quietway 1 at the Halfpenny Bridge. Finally Q1 to Surrey Canal Rd, Bridgehouse Meadows and quiet streets back to Peckham Square.
