Bexley Healthy ride via the Plumstead Windmill - 10am start, meet at Danson Stables car park DA6 8HL
Usual easy paced 2hr Healthy social ride aiming to reach back to Danson for midday - The Plumstead Mill ride is on mostly quiet roads, paths and parks where possible. We ride to find the mill which dates back to the 1820’s and was used to grind corn, We head off through welling towards Wickham street and Swing gate lane to reach Plumstead common the location of this old Mill building, then across Plumstead common navigating the back streets to reach Plumstead station and into Thamesmead West and Gallions park, here we will pick up a short section of the Thames path and loop back to Welling making our way back to Danson. There are no major hills just a few slopes, however we wait for all riders, Harry leading. 11.8 miles "All Welcome"
