Sunday London Ghosts Signs Ride - 27 March (day ride)
Ride leader Ross says:
You’ve probably passed many ghost signs and not even noticed. These faded advertisements can be found all over London and are fascinating pieces of urban archaeology. Hidden in plain sight, they are London’s history written onto the contemporary cityscape. They reveal fascinating stories of everyday life in the capital, each sign telling its own story. On this ride we’ll visit some of the better and more interesting examples in London.
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 19 miles, and will finish at a cafe in Bloomsbury. I expect us to be there around 1.30pm, give or take.
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.
