Parks of North London - edition 4
Another chance to enjoy our cycle tour of the parks of North (East) London, some large, some small, several with cafes. We have done this ride three times before and will follow approximately the same route but hopefully with something new thrown in (could be the Olympic Park depending on time and fine tuning of the route)
The ride will be about two-thirds on road, with off road sections up the Parkland Way from Finsbury Park to Highgate, along the Lee valley and through some of the parks. We will find quiet roads wherever possible, so it will be an easy sociable ride and should be OK for relative beginners especially as you will be riding in a group and we'll be happy to walk across any particularly tricky junctions. Suitable for most bikes - but note that the Parkland Way can be muddy.
We'll make at least 2 cafe stops, maybe 3, depending on weather, time and the general inclinations of the participants. For those wanting to bring their own food, please feel free to do so but note that you might be eating out in the rain if the weather is unkind to us!
We will leave from outside Vesuvio Cafe at 09.45. The ride leaders will no doubt be there from about 09.15 having coffee so feel free to join us. We will also pick up from London Fields at around 10.15 - Lamb Lane entrance. You might have to wait a few minutes for us depending on how promptly we get away! We should be back in the Mile End/Limehouse area by about 15.30.
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.
