From Danson Park, skirting Welling, towards Oxleas Woods, then via Falconwood to Eltham Park South. Next through Eltham, and Kidbrooke to Sun in Sands, St Johns Church and down Maze Hill to old Greenwich power station, through RNC, past Cutty Sark and over Deptford Creek, reaching 'Peter the Great' statue.
Turn and head south on Waterlink Way, pausing at Ferranti Park and join Q1. Follow Q1 east along Halfpenny Hatch over Creek, then move to north side of railway towards Greenwich Town Centre. Skirting town centre, around theatre and into Greenwich Park. Up long hill (but without motor traffic) to enjoy well deserved cafe stop. Afterwards south out of park, across Blackheath and follow usual route east through Kidbrooke. At Eltham, we will use the new crossing of Well Hall Rd (approaching crossing on widened pavement), then swing past Eltham Station. Finally up to Falconwood, and back to Danson Park.
Robert leading - 18 miles. Some hills, however we will wait for all riders. No one is left behind. However we recommend any new riders to skip this ride and first try one of our shorter rides during June.
Please ensure your bike is in roadworthy condition and that the tyres are fully inflated and ideally you have at least one spare inner-tube and that your seat is at the correct height and that you are dressed for the weather for this time of year.
