Our regular ride around the borough. Easy riding, mostly off road. 20 miles.
This time it will will be a “reverse” or clockwise route to maximise coffee stop options in the second half – starting with a look at developments around the Olympic Park (which we have not covered for a long time), the Greenway, Beckton to the Royal Docks, and back up the Lea Valley.
Newham Ride with a West Ham FC theme…
We will start at the Greenway Common Cafe (aka the View Tube) at 10.00am and visit sites with a West Ham connection, using mostly off road paths but with some (quiet) road sections. We will end up at Central Park, the recently revamped Red Lion, formerly known as the Hammers. About 12 miles with plenty of stops, including for coffee or other refreshment. Expected finishing time between 2.00 and 3.00pm.
