Flat 3 hour, 13 mile ride so pretty easy-paced. Lots of Thameside and dock-side path or quiet streets. Start 9.30 (Note early 9.30 start), aim to finish 12.30 to 1pm at Cutty Sark (so just right for joining Southwark Cyclists Picnic). Start location: Greenwich Station. Meet at main entrance on Greenwich High Road, near the Novotel (not DLR station entrance or on platform). OR meet at tunnel exit at Island Gardens at 9.45 (for people happy to carry bikes down/up steps at Greenwich Foot Tunnel, or who can ride directly to Island Gardens). Please indicate on the registration form if you plan to join at Island Gardens. Leader Jamie.
Route. To begin we will take the DLR to Mudchute (bring face mask and travel pass or equivalent). Then east side of Isle of Dogs to Blackwall, East India Dock Basin, Lee flyover cycle path, Royal Victoria Dock, Excel Centre, Royal Albert Dock, London City Airport. Start return over Sir Steve Redgrave Bridge, then across Woolwich Ferry (or if just miss one via Foot Tunnel). Back via Thames Path (NCN 4) past Flood Barrier and O2. Most of route will be same as on previous Thames Lovers ride, map at http://tiny.cc/6fabdz. As Jaime said in his report from that ride, “There cannot be many healthy activities more enjoyable than a cycle along a warm and sunny London river path with good company.” Fingers crossed we get the warm and sunny again!
