Ride to the Exchange Cafe, Erith

Meet Sat Nov 23rd, 9.30am at Cutty Sark Gardens, by the entrance to the Greenwich Foot Tunnel, SE10 9HT

This is a 26 mile loop ride to visit the Exchange Cafe, which is at the back of the old Library in Erith.

We meet at Cutty Sark Gardens and cycle along the Thames Path and via the new "missing link" overhanging section to Woolwich, where we look at the new development there, including the Boulangerie Jade, which replaced the Cornerstone Cafe almost two years ago. We then continue past Crossness to Erith, where we stop off for a refreshment break at the Exchange Cafe.

There is a train station at Erith with regular trains back to London Bridge and you can finish the ride there if you want to do a shorter ride.

We then return along the Thames Path to Cutty Sark, where the ride finishes.

Christmas Day Ride 2019

The Christmas Day Ride has happened every year since 2001, so there's no way it's going to be prorogued!

This ride was inaugurated in by the late Barry Mason, coordinator of Southwark Cyclists, founder of Greenwich Cyclists and organiser of the Dunwich Dynamo. Although in previous years it has been brought to you under the auspices of LCC and then Cycling UK and then as a British Cycling letsride.co.uk ride, the Dog & Bell Crew has now done a "no-deal Brexit" and carries out the ride under its own auspices.

Ride to Petticoat Lane - Sat Oct 17th 2020, 9.30am

Meet Sat Oct 17th, 9.30am, Cutty Sark Gardens, by the entrance to the Greenwich Foot Tunnel, SE10 9HT

This is an 18 mile ride to visit Petticoat Lane. However, there will be a surprise in store for us. It doesn't exist! We will discover that changed its name to Middlesex Street nearly 200 years ago, but that hasn't stopped people from continuing to use the name for branding and commercial purposes.
