Cake Mountain Ride

After last year’s successful ride, we are putting this one into the calendar.  Cakes and bikes – what’s not to like?!

This is a 40 mile round trip, mostly off road, with an option to take a train from Waltham Cross to Liverpool St, for those that would prefer not to ride back.

Women’s Ride

For this inaugural Newham Cyclists Women’s Ride in conjunction with the Forest Gate WI we are doing a relatively short and steady ride, along ‘The Line‘ sculpture trail. There will be plenty of stops to look at the sculptures and take in some refreshment. This is not a ride for those looking to boost their Strava ratings!

If you don’t have a bike or are bringing a friend who doesn’t, you’ll be able to hire one from View Tube Bikes!

We will be doing a pick up at 10.00 from Coffee7 in Forest Gate for the WI, so anyone who would prefer to meet us there can do so.  (Obviously no good if you’re hiring a bike from the View Tube!)

Our route will take us across the river on the Cable Car (both ways) – so please bring your Oystercard or contactless for the cheapest fare (£3.50 each way).

Bring your camera & your sunscreen & your waterproofs – it is the UK after all! We will be making a stop for lunch, but if you’d prefer to bring your own, there is a good picnic spot. Don’t forget to bring plenty of water too.

 

 

Cake Mountain 30th April

Join us for a ride up the the Lea valley, through Epping Forest to the the historic St Thomas’s church Upshire. This is a 40 mile round trip, mostly off road, with an option to take a train from Waltham Cross to Liverpool St, for those that would prefer not to ride back. Bring a packed lunch, as we will eat in the churchyard if the weather permits.

Meet at the the View Tube – The Common Greenway at 10am on 30/04/17

Ladies Lea Valley Ride

This will be our first ride with the Forest Gate WI. We will be meeting and starting out with the main Lea Valley Ride. However, we’ll be taking a much gentler pace and peeling off to have a cup of tea and some cake, probably at Springfield Park, before heading home.

There will be a pick up point at Coffee7 at 9.30am for anyone coming from the WI.
