Idea is to explore a bit further west on the south side of the river. Burgess Park is on the west edge of Southwark, so the obvious place to start. Last did this ride in October 2017, see report at http://healthyrider.weebly.com/healthy-ride-reports-oct-dec-2017.html.
Outward route this time will go via Vauxhall and Battersea Power Station to Battersea Park Then round the park and on to the nice paths along the Battersea and Wandsworth riverside, eventually reaching Wandsworth Park. If time, could go a further ½ km and have a look at the rowers on the Putney Embankment. Coffee break in Wandsworth Park, but sadly no time for a round on the well-maintained Crazy Golf Course. Return route has great contrasts. Back along the river to the bridge over Bell Lane Creek, the mouth of the River Wandle. Then head south into Wandsworth town centre along shared use pavement and across cycle crossings to avoid the traffic on the 1-way system. Next King George’s Park with a nice path by the Wandle. At the south end of the park, turn left and start heading home via Wandsworth and Clapham Commons. Fairly flat route, 28km, a lot of park and riverside traffic free,
