Easter Bunny Ride in support of Wheels for Wellbeing Over the Easter weekend we plan to run some rides in support of an organization that supports all ability cycling helping to raise some funds. You can read more about them here:- http://www.wheelsforwellbeing.org.uk/inclusive-cycling/ Come and join in the fun dress up yourself or your bike there might even be some chocolate involved. A small donation or sponsorship for joining the ride would be greatly appreciated and can be given here:- http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/W4WEasterBunnyRide Riding mainly on shared cycle paths we will leave the Blackheath Tea Hut &l ride through Greenwich Park and head towards the O2 where we cross the Thames via the Emirates Cable Car which offers some fabulous views and we will see the QEOP where we will be stopping at the View Tube for a refreshment break in the distance. Passing the Excel Centre we will be riding along the Thames towards the City Airport, we then travel through Beckton Park before reaching the Greenway which leads the QEOP. After stopping at the cycle friendly View Tube we will return to Greenwich via the Canal network through the Limehouse Basin and passing Canary Wharf. We then will cross the river via the Greenwich foot tunnel which we will have to walk through. It's then back through the park to arrive back at our starting point. The cost for the Emirates is £4.50 or £3.40 with an Oyster Card. Whilst the ride can be ridden on any bike hybrid/MTB will be a more comfortable ride for this route,
