Meandering counter-clockwise through the quietways of the East End, the route
first heads towards Shadwell before joining the Thames Path edging the Isle of Dogs. We then take in a loop of Canary Wharf before heading to Blackwall then continue through Poplar before catching the canal path towards the QE Olympic Park where we will have a coffee stop on the 11th mile at the The View Tube
. We will then head for a circuit of Victoria Park exiting onto 4 Pound Path then crossing the Green Bridge (which is yellow underneath!) to arrive back at our start point.
Relatively flat and at a leisurely pace, this ride welcomes all abilities, but please note the 15 mile distance with 464 feet of climbs.
