Note the slightly earlier 9.30 start. 20 mile route largely follows the river, keeping to the south side. Outward takes the Thames path round the Greenwich peninsula and continuing to Woolwich and Thamesmead. Heads inland on mostly paths to Lesnes Abbey and a well-deserved coffee break. On the return use the 3 mile linear, elevated, Ridgeway path to Woolwich, then Thames path again until the Ecology Park at N Greenwich. Cut across the peninsula to save your legs and finish along a short stretch of Thames path to Cutty Sark. High proportion of this route is on off-road paths. Done this route at least twice in recent years. Route map below
