Friday Features.

I ask friends what they would like to know or ask about Bikes or Cycling.

This came up in varying ways…

I want to get a bike and I want to ride my bike, BUT not on the road “am scared ” or a Cycle Lane “it’s intimidating ”

As someone who’s cycled safely since a kid, has confidence and awareness on a bike, I take it for granted… and have

NO FEAR

 

Here are some great options for INTO the CYCLE LANES OFF the Roads.

This is just to show HOW much we can do on designated paths.

Two of my  Favourite Local rides are along the Thames Cycle Path

Start at The Cutty Sark Head East keep going until the Thames Barrier for light refreshments and a loo break.

If still energised and loving the traffic free Flat scenic ride, keep going to Erith.

Where you can jump on the train back into London.

Or from the Station in Erith and finish up in one of the many pubs along the Thames in Greenwich!

I will give more Traffic-free routes that have plenty to offer along the way, from Country pubs to city Shopping.
