This is a pleasant and relaxing waterside route from the View Tube Café (toilets and bike hire available) to the White Water Centre at Waltham Abbey. To begin the route you can enjoy spectacular views of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from the sightseeing platform from which you will see the 2012 Games Stadium, the Acceleror Orbital Tower, the London Aquatics centre and in the distance the Lee Valley Velopark with its iconic Velodrome. Leaving the Greenway you take the Lee Valley Navigation System via along the towpath to the 2012 Games White Water Rafting Centre at Waltham Abbey. Along the way there are options to explore the parks and marshes of North London and see some of the local wildlife. You'll also pass the Copper Box arena, home to the handball, fencing, and goalball events of the 2012 Games.

Please note that this route is suitable for any kind of bike but we would recommend using a hybrid or a mountain bike.
