Back on Jan 13th we did a ride crossing the 6 central bridges over the Thames (report here). Now is the chance to head upstream and ride the next 5 bridges, Lambeth, Vauxhall, Chelsea, Albert and Battersea. 10 am start at Waterloo Station. Meet beside the Victory Arch next to the Cab Rd, just off York Rd. Ride to Lambeth Bridge via Lambeth North station, Archbishops Park and Black Prince Rd. Left off Lambeth Bridge and along C6 to Vauxhall Bridge. On south side use crossing to get on the Thames Path and mostly follow this to Battersea Power Station. Continue through Battersea Park and turn on to Albert Bridge. Left off Albert Bridge and along the short stretch of embankment to Battersea Bridge. Cross this, our farthest bridge and head back to Battersea Park. Turn on to Chelsea Bridge and at the far side take a 2-stage right on to C8 followed by immediate left to Lupus St and Pimlico. Use the cycle crossing to get on to the cycleway on Vauxhall Bridge Rd and cross Vauxhall Bridge for the second time. Finish by crossing Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens and take C5 to Waterloo Millenium Green opposite the Old Vec, where the ride will finish. 10 miles, no hills. Several possible coffee spots if time allows. Bruce leading. Route at https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=14RgZ0zoVie6bUSZmAGJ9Qk6TJWTeUf0&usp=sharing
Always give way to pedestrians and to other cyclists so all path users feel safe. Riders of all ages are welcome but under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Same for “adults at risk”.
This ride is part of a regular programme of Saturday rides, more information at https://southwarkcyclists.org.uk/healthy-rides/.
