We are doing 2 different rides on Saturday 25th July. As previously you MUST now book using Eventbrite. Both rides are included as a single event. Note that this means the header information here and on Eventbrite covers the whole event and is not correct for any individual ride. The correct information is in the details below. You should choose the ticket for the ride you want. You will find 6 places available for each ride.
Note because there are 2 rides with different end times and locations within this “Event” your ticket will give the overall timing and the SE5 post code for both rides. The correct timings and locations for each ride are given in the details below.
Important. If you are booked but find you cannot make the ride, CANCEL on Eventbrite. That way we do not wait around, and possibly may be able to let an extra person on the ride. Even at the very last minute it is worth cancelling as some riders keep a close eye on bookings right up to start time.
Ride 1. Burgess Park to Design Museum and Brompton Cemetery. 10am to 1pm. Jane leading. Start/finish at Park Life Café, Burgess Park, Chumleigh Gdns, off Albany Rd, SE5 0RJ. Easy 16 mile ride with some nice off road in the parks and lots to see. Outward go through Hyde Park and on to Holland Park. Probably stop at the Design Museum for a short break, then return via Brompton Cemetery and Battersea Park. Should be back at Burgess Park around one o’clock.

Ride 2. Greenwich to Canada Water via Wapping and Tower Bridge. 10am to 12 noon. Simon leading. This 8 mile ride is making history for the Healthy Rides. First it is not going to finish where it starts. Second it will involve a trip on the DLR. Meet in front of Greenwich (main) station in Greenwich High Road, next to Novotel Hotel, NOT the DLR station where there are stairs. Catch DLR, platform 3 to Mudchute, about a 6 minute ride. (Anyone wanting to meet at Mudchute Stn. be there by 10.10). Skirt Mudchute Park to Westferry Road, on through Wapping to St Katherine’s Dock, over Tower Bridge to end at Canada Water Library (Deal Porter Square). Mixture of (quiet) main road, CS3, cobbles & Thames Path. We are using DLR to cross the river, as lifts not working in Greenwich foot tunnel. With the selected stations, no stairs or lifts, just some ramps. Remember bring FACE COVERING & TRAVEL PASSES FOR DLR.
Under 18s must bring a responsible adult with them.
