Please join us on what promises to be a interesting and scenic cycle along the River Lea, from Victoria Park to Waltham Abbey, this ride was canceled a couple of weeks ago due to rain, lets pray the weather behaves this time! :-)
Here is the plan for our afternoon
1) Meet outside Hackney Wick Overground Station at 11.15am.
2) Cycle to Waltham Abbey along the river path, approx 15 miles
3) Tea/coffee in Waltham Abbey
4) Cycle back to Victoria Park, ride finishes here.
The group will be cycling at a very casual average pace of approx 8- 10mph and no one will be left behind. This will give everyone the opportunity to stop for a coffee or take pictures. A mountain bike or hybrid bike would be best suited for this ride.
The total mileage covered will be approx 30miles.
Helmets will be compulsory. Please bring lights as well.
This event is weather dependent, if heavy rain is forecast then the event will be canceled, please check the website the evening before and a few hours before the start of the event.
It is strongly recommended that you carry a spare inner tube & pump in case of a puncture, waterproof jacket and lights.
