12 riders, plus Bruce leading, set off from Peckham Square in bright sunshine. Down to Rothsay St/Law St junction via Burgess Park, Surrey Square, Willow Walk and Webb St. There found the Sustrans “pop-up” table (with cakes) with 2 Sustrans people already taking to one of the locals about the plan to use Rothsay St as part of the Central Grid/Quietway. Might have to modify the artistic barrier (see photo) and maybe reduce the size of the recently installed flower bed. But could be a good replacement for present LCN22 route across the busy Grange St/Tower Bridge Rd Junction.
Healthy Riders at Sustrans “Pop-Up” table at Rothsay St
From there followed a route consisting of proposed elements of the Central Grid. First south to Leathermarket St, then west along Newcomen and Union streets to The Cut. At this point diverted along Hatfields to the river (photo). After a break, headed back along Cornwall, Webber, Gt Suffolk, Trinity, and Tanner Streets. After Tanner, turned down Law St to return to the Sustrans event. Were told there had been useful discussion with many local people about the cycle route plan (and there were a few cakes left!). Back to Peckham Square via Webb St, Mandela Way, Glengall Rd and the Canal Path. Sun still shining!
