This is my back. My best bit. My front is friendlier, I like to think. I lead the Bike Train but I don’t go very fast — about 8mph I’m told which is, of course, twice walking pace. I think I go faster than that but you get the idea.
We’re tending to use Quietway 1 these days rather that the traditional Bike Train route. This is mostly because Quietway 1 is a gem and the Bike Train route is beset by roadworks and people digging it up. All in a worthy cause I’m sure but they get in the way.
We set off at 7.45am from Nunhead station, swing by Peckham Rye (meeting at the bike stands behind McDonalds) and then head up glorious Surrey Canal Path. QW1 is only 10 mins very easy ride from Peckham Town Centre. We asked for it to be signposted but TfL won’t allow signposting in case cyclists are misled. I’m pretty sure we are more robust than that but never mind we will show you how it’s found.
QW1 crosses all the approach roads to the Thames bridges — starting with Tower Bridge, London Bridge, Southwark Bridge and finally Blackfriars. Riders can be taken to any one of them, take your pick and we can take you on if you let us know in advance. We get to the river around 8.30am
Any queries text me on 07842 640 207 or mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Everyone welcome. Return rides arranged on request. Most things arranged on request. If the Bike Train doesn’t suit you, ask about our Bike Taxis — your free personal escort to work.
