For our regular 2nd Saturday ride from Canada Water, planning an easy-paced ride to the Bermondsey Street Festival (Festival details on Facebook at http://tiny.cc/vm21bz
An outward route with lots to see. Down the Albion Channel to the Thames. West along the Thames path to Tower Bridge. Cross Tower Bridge then use pedestrian crossing to get to the slip road down to St Katherines Dock. Over the Red Bridge and through to the Hermitage Riverside Memorial Garden and on to Ivory Dock. North to Royal Mint St and Cycleway 3. West to Tower Hill and via Cycleway 5 to The Monument. Across London Bridge and down Borough High St to Newcomen St (Cycleway 14). Follow CW14 to Bermondsey St. Have a 20 min stop here to look at some of the Festival Activities. Option to stay at the Festival if you want.
Following break at the Festival, for those wishing to continue, will get back to Canada Water using the Cycleway 14 route mostly along or close to the Thames.
