Reports

Southwark Needle to Ingrebourne Way - Ride Report, Aug 15th 2020


As we have run a series of succesful rides from the View Tube to Trent Park, St Albans and Walthamstow, we tried out another north London ride. This time it was to the "far east" - Rainham, the Ingrebourne Way and Upminster.

There were 10 of us when we met up at the View Tube, which is twice as many as we had when we tried out some south London rides. We decided to split into two groups of 5 and did a "Rendezvous Ride", by arranging to meet up at the Ingrebourne Visitor Centre for a refreshment break.

One of the groups did cycle round Beam Country Park and Mick, who lives locally in Havering, managed to spot us and joined as at the cafe:

The two groups went back to London different ways. One returned on the fast superhighway route and the other went on to take a look at the Upminster Windmill, whose sails are being refurbished in Holland:

We then went to Hornchurch, and were shown the horns of the Horn Church:

We then continued through Harrow Lodge Park to the Chase, which took us back to the Greenway and eventually the View Tube, where the ride finished.

Southwark Needle to Bushy Park & Hampton Court - Ride Report, Aug 8th 2020


As there had been four cancellations for this ride, there were only four of us who met up for this ride at the Southwark Needle (Andrew, Hashim, Mike and Nigel). We also bumped into Jane, Sue & Adrian, who were one their way to the Canada Water ride, which started half an hour later. We started by cycling via The Cut and CS5 to Battersea Park, where we did a relay, with Mike leaving and Birgit joining. We crossed the Thames at Chelsea Bridge and cycled out to Imperial Wharf and Fulham Palace, where we stopped for a much needed coffee break, given the heat. We then went back to Putney and passed Jane Champion an Jamie's group going the other way for their coffee break. Once at Putney we followed the Thames Path to Barnes, Kew Bridge and Richmond. We then passed Strawberry Hill House and St Margaret's Station and then cycled though Busy Park to Hampton Court. Unfortunately the cafe there had been put inside the pay zone, so we went on to Kingston Riverside, where we stopped off for a meal at the Gazebo pub. Richmond Park is now open for cyclists at the weekend, so we cycled through it and then followed a route through Wandsworth Town to Clapham Junction, where the ride finished.
