Bedgebury single-tracks

Could be muddy so dress appropriately, bring water and snacks.
Meet at the cafe (near main car park) at 11am
About 10 miles.

 


Note: Anyone wanting to do the “family route” can do so, and meet for coffee afterwards. A hybrid bike will be fine for this as it’s not as muddy as the single-track sections.

London canal ride

We have been invited to Join my friends Dave and Paul with the Gravesend CTC group that I used to cycle with, on a London Canal / Olympic park ride.

I’m told it will be a fun, chilled-out day.

We will meet at Princess Alice Way, Woolwich London SE28 ready to leave at 9:40am
Returning at approx. 5pm

I’m told parking is free in the above residential street,  The train doesn’t seem to be an option so it will mean driving.
(You could get the train to London Bridge and then do a 9 mile pre-ride to start with, but it’s only suitable if you’re a confident cyclist, plus it adds another 20 miles!)

Mileage will be between 30 & 40.  Apparently any type of bike will be OK, I would suggest a hybrid bike

Please bring snacks and water. We will stop at a pub for lunch, and a café for coffee

Please contact Penny on 07931 516715.
