Evening ride - Olympic Park version 2
A short sociable evening ride. Meet outside Vesuvios cafe, Three Colt Street, Limehouse (just off Narrow St/Limehouse Causeway) in time for an 18.45 departure. The route will head up the Limehouse Cut to the Olympic Park, with a chance to cycle the new traffic free link over to Hackney Marshes, and hopefully see the road circuit and/or velodrome in action.
We will finish in Mile End Park near the Palm Tree. Depending on the weather, feel free to bring a picnic with you, or get fish and chips and sit eating and/or drinking in the park.
Total distance around 9 miles, very easy pace, and lots of motor traffic free riding for maximum socialising!
Vesuvios cafe is open until 19.00 so if you get there early you can have a snack/coffee/meal, but there is no obligation to buy anything.
Don't forget lights - it will be dusk/dark when we finish.
We will probably cancel if the weather turns wet, so keep an eye on the forecast and our website for any updates, or call us if you aren't sure whether it is happening.
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.
