We're teaming up with Amersham Breeze to ride together through London. This ride begins at Baker Street station and finishes at Aldgate. We can take our bikes on the train as it's off-peak. You will need to lift your bike up and down stairs, but others will help if needed. We can take the 0852 from Pinner or 0858 from Harrow on the Hill to arrive by 9.30am. The ride begins in the quiet streets of Marylebone, then via Park Lane to Hyde Park Corner, Buckingham Palace and Parliament Square on protected cycle lanes. We take Cycleway 3 along the Embankment to see the sights, up to Tower Hill from which we follow the docks and canals to Shadwell Basin, then turn north to the farm. We'll have 45 minutes at the farm for refreshments and to look around; visiting the farm is free. Then it's back through Mile End and Whitechapel on Cycleway 2 to Aldgate station, from which we can take the train home. It's a ride of contrasts: the sights of Westminster, smart new flats in Docklands, parts of the East End which have yet to benefit from regeneration, and a farm full of animals and plants. https://stepneycityfarm.org Please note that due to some cobbled streets, this ride is not suitable for road bikes.
