We thought it might be a good idea to start keeping a page with links to the various routes we use for our rides. So here’s some to start with. A disclaimer though… We plot these from memory and do not take any responsibility for slight deviations and inaccuracies which may arise due to the way ridewithgps software might configure the route when mapping online. We do check them and every route has been ridden several times, but things change quickly in our city. Please contact us if you discover any changes, problems, innaccuracies, or if you have suggestions for better ways to negotiating parts of any of the routes.
This first route is the beginning of a project we have started. A range of short beginner appropriate routes from each part of the borough, which can then be linked to form a longer ride as experience, fitness and stamina increase.
Rides from the four corners of Lewisham:
Ride 1: A 7 mile circular from Deptford: Deptford Family Ride
Beyond the borough!
1. Over the Hills and Not So Far Away: into Surrey, up and along Farthing Down and then across to Kent. Along the Pilgrims’ Way and then back to London via Cudham, Downe, West Wickham, Beckenham Place Park and the Waterlink Way. http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/214492873
6. One version of our famous Flat(tish) Kent Ride There are quite a few different versions of this ride…all good.
7. Hyde Park and back to Ladywell A circular route using lots of traffic free paths and cycle tracks plus Quietway
