A ride to look at some trees. Boring. Maybe – but trees, we are realizing, are not just a taken-for-granted background. They matter. They soak up CO2 and are good for our health.  Inspiration comes from a talk in March 2021 to Better Streets Southwark by Paul Wood about Tree Talk and his amazing Tree Map. Route is based on Paul’s Great Trees of London Map (£8 from book shops).  We did this ride for the first time last year, see report.  Start is 10am from the Southwark Needle, south end of London Bridge, SE1 2PF. Handy for London Bridge Station if you want to get to the start by train.  Route an 11 mile circuit to 6 of the Great Trees plus the palm trees at Chumleigh Gardens in Burgess Park. Route uses a mixture of paths and quiet streets, just short stretches of busy road. Runs through Camberwell, Peckham, New Cross and Deptford.  Should end back at London Bridge at around 12.30 pm. Bruce leading.  Annotated route map at https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=1WMWt1qLR_4_obNGcwNHD3Sghfv22eLEW&usp=sharing
