Sunday London Ride Goes Down The Park - 7 August (day ride)
Ride leader Ross says:
London’s many parks are said to be its lungs (a phrase first attributed to William Pitt). On this ride we’ll gently make our way round several of the well known, and less well known parks and find out a little bit more about them and their history. A perfect way to spend a Sunday morning with friends.
Like all our Sunday London rides we’ll travel at a leisurely, social pace, so the ride is suitable for everyone and everyone is welcome. We’ll use quiet roads where we can, although it's not always possible to avoid traffic altogether in central London. Even on a Sunday morning.
The route is around 17 miles, and will finish at a cafe at the Olympic Park in Stratford. I expect us to be there around 1.30pm, give or take. Suitably refreshed it’’s an easy 15 minute ride back to The City on CS2.
We'll meet a a West End location at 9.30am, leaving shortly after. There'll be a quick comfort break part way round, but it's best if you use the facilities in one of the parks (20p) or a mainline station (free) before you rock up to the start.
Registration will open nearer the date.
