New Year’s Day 2016
  • Date: Jan 1 2016
  • Ride Name: New Year's Day
  • Description:

    Join Greenwich Cyclists to start the New Year. A 25-mile round trip ride along the easy and flat Thames Path to the fair town of Erith. We will take lunch at one of the cafes open in town before returning along the same route to Greenwich.

    The ride will suit all ages, abilities and temperaments and should end about 3pm at Cutty Sark Gardens. Get rid of any hangover or surplus ounces and enjoy our now customary jaunt.

    For those who wish to take the train back to Greenwich, there is a truncated service to Charlton twice an hour. We believe the service via Blackheath is running. The BBC weather forecast is dry but cooler for Friday.

    Bring a spare inner tube, lights and your remaining good cheer.

  • Grade: Easy

“Bazelgette Way” and Lesnes Abbey Ride
  • Date: Sunday 7 May 2017
  • Ride Name: "Bazelgette Way" and Lesnes Abbey Ride
  • Description:

    Come and enjoy the rural views and hopefully the May blossom from the vantage point of the improved Ridgeway. We will ride the Thames Path as far as Plumstead, use the Ridgeway or “Bazalgette Way” towards Abbey Wood and touch on Lesnes Abbey and the Crossrail project before riding down to the river again, then back to Woolwich and on to Greenwich, all on the Thames Path.

    We should stop for brunch at a café near Abbey Wood. A flat, mainly off-road ride of about 25 miles, where road surfaces will suit all but the skinniest of tyres. But bring spare tubes just in case.

    This ride is organised by Greenwich Cyclists, a branch of London Cycling Campaign.

  • Grade: Easy
  • Meeting time/place: 10:00 7 May 2017 Cutty Sark Gardens, near foot tunnel entrance, SE10 9HT. We should be at Woolwich Arsenal near the little men statues at 10:45 if you wish to join the ride there.
