Typical easy-paced Southwark Cyclists Healthy Ride.  Aim is to get to Severndroog Castle on top of Shooters Hill.  Start time 9.30 (note earlier than usual time). Start/finish Peckham Square (Peckham library, Peckham Pulse Leisure Centre, SE15 5RY). Duration 3.5 hours including refreshment break. Outward route uses bus lanes on busy A202 and A2 to Deptford Bridge. Then off road and quiet roads to Eltham Well Hall via Lewisham and Kidbrooke Village. Brief stop in Well Hall Pleasaunce to prepare for the summit ascent.  Make a short ride through the foothills to the southwest corner of Jack Wood, then the steep (but short) path up to Severndroog Castle. Plenty of time to just walk up – really steep section only 300m long.  Fast return route using initially busy Shooters Hill Road, then the underpass at the Sun in the Sands roundabout and quiet streets to Greenwich Park.  Whiz down the hill in the park and more quiet streets to Quietway 1 at the Halfpenny Bridge. Finally Q1 to Surrey Canal Rd, Bridgehouse Meadows and quiet streets back to Peckham Square.  Bruce leading, route at https://bit.ly/2Fv5z5Z
