Ride to Shirley Windmill

Meet on Sat Apr 25th, 10am, Peckham Square, next to Peckham Library, SE15 5JR

A quick Google search reveals that "Spokes - London Cycling" (see https://www.cyclinguk.org/local-groups/hills-cyclists) is:

"based in Beckenham & Selsdon, South Croydon, but our rides usually start at Beckenham Green, diagonally opposite Beckenham Junction train station, or in Greenwich, by the foot tunnel opposite the Cutty Sark. We arrange two types of rides: a "Fitness Ride", which can be between 30-80 miles, with lots of hills on the shorter routes, and less climbing, flatter, but faster average speeds, on the longer routes. The second type is a social ride, which can be between 10-30 miles, fewer hills, and ridden at a steady, social pace."

So, these are instructions we need to follow and on this occasion we will be meeting at Peckham Square at 10am to do a 23 mile return ride to Beckenham Green and Selsdon. On our return ride we will be going past Shirley Windmill (https://www.shirleywindmill.org.uk), so we will be able to take a look at this.

We start the ride by cycling to Nunhead, where we follow the path of the London to Lewes Way to Beckenham Place Park. We then continue to Beckenham Green and West Wickham, where we turn right and cycle to Addington and Selsdon. On the return route we go past Shirley Windmill and we then finish the ride by climbing up Crystal Palace and cycling down College Road to Dulwich Park.
