Two Rivers and a Deer Park
We will head westwards via Limehouse and Wapping then along the Thames as far as Richmond, where we will climb up the park to admire the views. Then we'll descend to join our second river of the day and follow the Wandle trail to West Croydon, returning to the East End on the London Overground (Oyster PAYG). Expect an easy pace, lots of traffic free riding (it will be possible if you prefer to walk across Tower Bridge and we will avoid busy roads) and some cafe stops.
The total distance is around 30 miles, but if you want a shorter ride then you can return by train from Richmond via the District Line or main line train. We won't necessarily escort you all the way to the station but can give you directions and maybe a map. Mostly flat apart from Richmond Park, suitable for all bikes.
Upcoming rides & events
Our rides are highlighted by "RIDE". You don't have to be a member to join in and we're also always looking for new ride ideas. Contact our Rides Co-ordinator for further information.
There is no need to register beforehand for a ride unless this is specifically stated, most rides are "turn up and go".
Please note that for train assisted rides we often cannot publish times until about 2 weeks beforehand because of the need to check engineering works. Also sometimes our ride leaders do have to change dates/times/routes at reasonably short notice. Generally this website will be up to date and also details will be sent out to our email groups, but if in doubt contact the ride leader or our rides co-ordinator to check arrangements.
