Peasants Revolt Ride
Join Greenwich Cyclists to trace the arc of history of the Great Rising (aka Peasants Revolt) from Blackheath, through Rotherhithe, across the Thames to the savoy and Smithfield, towards Mile End and then back to Greenwich through the foot tunnel. The Great Rising happened in June 1381 and was the greatest people’s rebellion ever in England.
The ride will use mainly quiet streets and try to avoid poor junctions. It will be easy and about 25 miles in all. We shall stop for refreshments around Smithfield and aim to be back in Greenwich before 16:00.
Dress code does not apply but wear a peasants outfit if you have one. Leave bows and arrows at home please, but bring water and a spare tube.
This ride is organised by Greenwich Cyclists, a branch of the London Cycling Campaign.
