Newham Ride 27 May 2018

A goodly band, including a contingent from south of the River, set out  without any expectation of avoiding at least one thunderstorm.

In the event we were blessed (as usual) with good weather and those that lasted to the end finished hot, but dry; all without mechanical mishap.

The ride was just over 16 miles around Newham with one small diversion to Trinity Buoy Wharf on the Tower Hamlets side of the mouth of the River Lea.

The intention was to pick up on some of the places of interest missed out in previous local rides.  What was remarkable was the scale of development along the Thames, from City Island to Gallions Reach.  Indeed  the new developments at Thames Barrier Park made it a difficult task to thread our way to the park.

Lets hope Newham ends up with a proper Thameside path!
