"Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been?" "We've followed the Cycle Superhighway CS3
from Canning Town to Westminster and then past Buckingham Palace to look at the Queen!"
on CS3 takes us through Poplar, alongside the Canary Wharf Estate and then on NCN13
through St Katherine's Docks and Wapping. We pass Tower Hill re-joining CS3 and continuing along the Embankment towards Westminster. Heading past Buckingham Palace, we then do a circuit of Hyde Park and have our halfway coffee stop
by the Serpentine then follow a similar route back on CS3 all the way to our start point.
This ride is mostly on a segregated cycle path and so ideal as a confidence builder for those starting off/returning to cycling. It is relatively flat and at a leisurely pace, this ride welcomes all abilities, but please note the 19 miles and 805 feet of climbs.
There is a feeder ride
starting from the outside of Ilford train station at 8.45am.
eBikes are welcome.
