Tower Hamlets Boundary Ride 2012
This year's opportunity to cycle the Tower Hamlets Borough boundary (or as near as possible on publicly accessible roads and paths!) and discover why Tower Hamlets has the best boundary of any London borough!
A large proportion of the boundary is along the rivers Thames and Lee, with further sections along Victoria Park and the canal, so quite a lot of motor traffic free riding, although there are also unfortunately a few busier roads to be negotiated. An easy paced ride.
Start time is 10.30 at Wheelers' favourite cafe, Vesuvios on Three Colt Street which is very near the river and hence the boundary. Some of us will be there from 10.00 having coffee and breakfast so please feel free to join us. We will pause part way around for a quick tea/coffee and loo stop but not a sit down lunch, so bring snacks with you if you want. We then aim to finish back at Vesuvios around 14.00 - 14.30 for a late lunch.
We haven't yet decided whether to go clockwise or anti-clockwise this year, so if you will be joining us from south of the river and coming through the foot tunnel, let me know and we can tell you whether you can meet us at Island Gardens en route (anti-clockwise) or whether you need to come to Vesuvios for the start (clockwise).
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.
