Bread pudding ride to Greenwich


Greenwich Park, with William IV

Sunday 7th April. A Cloudy day with some light Drizzle, leading to lunch, & a slightly heavier  afternoon Shower, saw 25 Cyclists remember the early start from New Malden leave via, Raynes park, Cannon Hill, South Merton, Morden Hall Park, Mitcham, Eastfields, where 1 extra Cyclist was ready to join us, Lonesome, Norbury, Thornton heath, Selhurst, Heavers Meadow, South Norwood, & Country Park, to join the ‘Waterlink way’, Sustrans route, via Beckenham, Lower Sydenham, Catford, Ladywell – with 1 person taking a tumble, suffering a couple of Bruises-, Lewisham, Greenwich Park, (Photo with William the IV), to Greenwich to find that the planned Pub stop had no Food, so now past 1 o’clock, a strategic decision that Wetherspoons would cope, so passing the Cutty Sark, with a missed turn, but soon finding ‘the Gate Clock’, a successful lunch, then finding the distressing sight that 1 of our Bikes had been Stolen, 😦 (this coming on top of my own recent loss), & with a few others also needing to curtail the ride, the remaining 19 Cyclists continued via the Thames Path, Deptford, ‘Quietway 1’, via Folkestone Gardens & South Bermondsey, Burgess Park, Camberwell, Loughborough, Brockwell Park, – with the ‘now steady Rain-, it was decided to have an earlier than planned Tea & Bread pudding stop at ‘the Mansion Cafe’, with Rain soon stopped, 🙂,Tulse Hill, Streatham Hill, Tooting Bec Common, Tooting, Mitcham, Phipps bridge, the Rose Garden, Morden, Morden Park, Lower Morden, Morden Cemetery, Joseph Hood Park, Motspur park, -with 1 person deciding to leave the ride for Home, without realising, they had 4 others following-, to finish at New Malden. Total 39 Miles, 1 new face, 1 Cycle theft, thanks to Andrea for back marking such a large group, many others for marking corners & Special thanks to Derek for the BP.
