Sunday 12th June 2016 – Woolwich from Abbey Wood via Riverside.
A gentle ride to Woolwich, covering about 10 miles, suitable for adults of all ages and accompanied children aged 10 or over, largely free of motor traffic with just a few short sections on quiet roads. Mostly on tarmac, some parts on stone or gravel surfaces.
Set off at 10:00 from Abbey Wood rail station, meeting up on the southern side overlooking Gayton Road car park, postcode SE2 9RH. Ride via Abbey Way path and ‘Bazalgette’ Ridgeway to Plumstead station; then to riverside and Woolwich. On return, optional climb up Gallions Tor, then around Tripcock Ness and along Thamesmead ‘promenade’. Finish at Lesnes Abbey, probably between 12:30 to 13:00 depending on duration of stops.
