Short ride around Bermondsey to sites associated with Ada and Alfred Salter.  2022 marks 100 years since Dr Alfred Salter was first elected as MP for Bermondsey and his wife Ada was elected as Bermondsey’s Mayor. A Salter Centenary Project has been organised by local people and this ride is being planned in conjunction with them.  Both Ada and Alfred cycled, making this ride a particularly appropriate part of the centenary celebrations.

Start/finish in Deal Porter Square, opposite Canada Water Station and next to Canada Water Library. We will visit 9 locations including the Salter Statues on Bermondsey Wall E., Wilson Grove, Bermondsey Town Hall and the Ada Salter Garden in Southwark Park.  Ride Leader will be Bruce Lynn (Southwark Cyclists) and brief background descriptions will be provided by Sheila Taylor.
