Healthy Ride 20 Nov 2021. Ride Leaders Jean and John
Report from Jean.
14 riders set off from Dulwich Park – some having come from Beckenham, Bexley or Croydon and others living more locally. We headed via Brockwell Park (passing the Art Deco building that is the Lido) to Clapham Common – to admire the Bandstand – the largest in London – built in 1890 and restored in 2006. Onwards via Wandsworth Common – passing by Wandsworth prison -to freewheel down Magdalen Road – almost a mile long – to Earlsfield. Just a few minutes more to reach Wimbledon Park which is adjacent to the All England Tennis Club (but not to be confused with Wimbledon Common which is a much larger space – a couple of miles further on ). The Park has a lovely boating lake and a thriving children’s Saturday morning tennis coaching programme so the cafe is pretty busy. We had time for a stop to enjoy some of Juliet’s ginger cookies before heading back on much the same route. The round trip was about 16 miles and the weather was just ideal – blue sky and dry although cold.
