You too can cycle with the Bike Train. We’re tending to use Quietway 1 rather than the route through Burgess Park. The new junction on the park route is a lot better but the on-pavement cycle lanes on the New Kent Road are unsuited to large groups (or indeed anyone)
Quietway 1 OTOH is a gem. London’s best quietway — indeed the capital’s only good quietway — it’s 10 minutes of quiet park and backstreets from Peckham Town Centre. Come with us and we’ll show you how the most risk-averse can get to central London, feathers fully unruffled
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 taken 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.
