Note you must register on Eventbrite at This is to allow us to limit numbers as we post information to several locations. If you do register here you may get a confirmation. I am afraid this does not over-ride the Eventbrite registration. If Eventbrite says the ride is full, then that is correct. You can join the Wait List on Eventbrite and may get lucky.

Meet Deal Porter Square (next to Canada Water Library, opposite CW Station) 10am and take the Overground train to Sydenham. Taking bikes on the Overground is surprisingly easy especially at step free stations like Canada Water and Sydenham. Cycle down to Bells Green and join the Waterlink Way (Nat Route 21). Follow one of the nicest stretches of off-road path in London to Ladywell Fields, then continue to Brookmill Park and on to where NR21 meets Cycleway 10 (was Quietway 1). Next follow CW10 through Deptford via Folkestone Gardens to the Millwall Ground. Take the path to Oldfield Grove (NR 425) and continue with this route to Greenland Dock. From there go past Tesco to Deal Porter Square. Easy 1.5 - 2 hour ride with lots of off road path. Map at Remember to bring Oyster or Contactless card (fare £1.60) and face mask. Can also join ride at Sydenham Overground Station at 10.30am; please indicate on Eventbrite if you intend to do this. NOTE this is Sydenham Station, not Lower Sydenham or Sydenham Hill.
