Starting point

E17 4JF

We will cycle via: the Lea Valley towpath and other trails in the area and back.

Parking is payable on weekdays in the Town Hall car park (but not Bank Holidays). Please arrive early, giving time for a quick bike check before setting off on time. The Breeze champion carries some tools and will help if anyone has a puncture or mechanical issues. However we do not carry spare inner tubes, so a spare suitable for your bike is useful to bring along.

Note: I don't do ice - the ride will be cancelled if there is significant ice or snow (unlikely from the forecast).

Ride around the Lea Valley marshes, a green oasis.

The route is mostly off-road, with two short stretches along quiet roads. The route will include some sections of tow path. Leisurely pace.

Cafe stop planned, so bring some money. Also, bring a drink - even though it's winter.

We never leave anyone behind
