"Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been?" "We've followed the Cycle Superhighway CS3 from Canning Town to Westminster and then past Buckingham Palace to look at the Queen!"
This ride is almost completely on a segregated cycle path and so ideal as a confidence builder for those starting off/returning to cycling.
NB. - For a shorter route, you an sign up to 'the Kitten ride' and we'll pick you up along the way from Tower Hill (https://www.letsride.co.uk/rides/made-in-the-east-end-the-kitten-ride-1
Our route takes us through Poplar, alongside the Canary Wharf Estate and then through Shadwell. We have a brief stop at Tower Hill to meet up with the Kitten ride before continuing along the Embankment towards Westminster. Heading past Buckingham Palace, we then have our halfway coffee stop at Hyde Park, before turning around following the same route back to our start point.
Relatively flat and at a leisurely pace, this ride welcomes all abilities, but please note the (20 mile) distance.
No under 12's and under 16's must be accompanied by the adult who has booked them on the ride. Please dress appropriately for the weather on the day.
All participants are expected to bring: • A bike in good working order with tyres pumped to the correct pressure. (If in doubt, have it checked over by a local bike shop or qualified mechanic). • Carry at least a spare inner tube, pump and tyre levers. • Dress for the weather. • A drink and energy bar/cash (we have a coffee stop along the way). • Lights if there is any chance of poor visibility.
