Wandsworth Common, Bolingbroke Grove, Wandsworth, London, SW11 6HF
We'll meet on Wandsworth Common at the top of Honeywell Rd where the cycle path begins., SW11 6HF
This is a pretty 11 mile ride with plenty of traffic-free sections in parks, on commons and along the River Thames.
We will cycle over Wandsworth Common, then by back roads down to King George's Park in Wandsworth, where we will follow the Wandle Trail briefly, before taking quiet residential roads to ascend slowly to Tibbets Corner, where we get onto Wimbledon Common.
Next comes a lovely traffic-free section on bike paths on Wimbledon Common and Putney Heath, followed by a long gentle descent down a quiet lane to Barnes Common. After crossing the common, we pass the London Wetland Centre to join the Thames Path and our return riverside ride through Putney and Wandsworth Park to finish at Birdhouse Cafe (great coffee!) on St John's Hill.
This ride is not suitable for road bikes (think skinny tyres and drop handlebars), due to the uneven and often muddy bike paths on Wimbledon Common, Putney Heath and along the Thames. Regular hybrid bikes (most ladies bikes are of this type) and mountain bikes will be fine.
Please make sure your tyres, gears and brakes are all in good order!
Look forward to seeing you there!
Note: In the unlikely event that we need to cancel a ride (due to champion illness or weather related) we will do our best to give you as much notice as possible, and we will always contact you directly on the mobile phone number which you have provided when registering with Breeze.
