This is a train-assisted ride, taking us from Paddington across to South East London and returning to Farringdon. We visit an historic Dockland area and discover some lovely green space in the midst of an urban environment. We will ride at a leisurely pace, with stops to admire views, take photos etc.

We ride down from Paddington through the Royal Parks to cross the river at Vauxhall Bridge, then make our way around the Oval, through Kennington Park to Camberwell, and on to Burgess Park. We continue through South Bermondsey towards Deptford, before turning back along the river to visit Greenland Dock https://www.urbanpatchwork.co.uk/blog/greenland-dock-its-history.html. We explore this historic waterside with its views over to the Isle of Dogs, and then ride on into Russia Dock Woodland and the Stave Hill Ecology Park https://homegirllondon.com/stave-hill-ecological-park-and-russia-dock-woodland/.

Returning to the riverfront, we ride through Rotherhithe with its historic Mayflower connections and stop to admire the Salter statues https://livinglondonhistory.com/dr-salters-daydream-a-very-moving-set-of-statues/ on Bermondsey Wall, before turning into Southwark Park for refreshments at the Pavilion Café.

Our return route takes us through the quieter back streets of Bermondsey, then over Blackfriars Brie and up to Farringdon for Elizabeth Line or Metropolitan Line services.
