Starting from - Following a recent ruling from British Cycling that rides organised on letsride.co.uk shouldn't clash, this Cutty Sark ride will now take place on the fourth Saturday of the month. Meet at Cutty Sark Gardens, by the entrance to the Greenwich Foot Tunnel, SE10 9DR
This is a ride where we will seek out the Faesten Dic, one of the best preserved ancient earthworks in the South-East. It can be found in Joyden’s Wood, a Woodland Trust site that is sandwiched between the A2 and A20, near Bexley,. It is an embankment along the Anglo-Saxon border between Kent and Surrey which is thought to have been constructed around the 8th century. We will ride out through Sidcup and then cycle round some of the many paths within Joyden's Wood. This woodland is so remote than many of its paths are not even shown on Google maps. We will keep to the high ground where the paths are well made-up and avoid the muddy paths which are churned up by horses and which nearly caused a minute once. After visiting Joyden's Wood we cycle to Hall Place, where we stop for a refreshment break and then we pass through Danson Park on our way back to Cutty Sark Gardens.
