Start/finish Cutty Sark, next to the tunnel entrance. Note the slightly earlier 9.30 start. Amanda leading. 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. After an ascent of the famous Thamesmead Tor, heads inland on mostly paths to Lesnes Abbey and a well-deserved coffee break and a quick look at the ruins of the Abbey. On the return use more of the 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. Loads to see, including riding past the O2, Thames Barrier and the steel men (“Assembly” by Peter Burke) at Woolwich Arsenal.
