Canal Rides 1 and 2

Posted on
  • Time to get your Pathracers out Ladies and Gentlemen.

    I was thinking of doing some nice gentle rides around this fair city.

    Limehouse Tube Station meet for a ride all along the Regents Canal to the Thames at the other end. Finishing point where the canal meets the Thames in Brentford.
    Ride : probably 40 miles all in give or take 5 miles
    Paths are 75% paved / 25% smooth dirt could be a little muddy due to recent rain

    Meet Limehouse Tube take the Lee Valley / Canals up into Hertfordshire and then back via Epping Forrest ( am not 100% sure of route but we can play it by ear.

  • last minute bump
    heading off now see you there if you are up for it

  • bugger that I have to work.

  • for tomorrow: if you follow signs for roydon when you reach broxbourne, stop by the italian restaurant built into the roydon train station platform. its the business.

  • is this still happening?

  • yeah why not
    my bum is aching a bit from yesterday but i'll still be there at 1.15 leaving at 1.30

  • another couple of spring rides

    Thames to Thames via The Regents Canal : Limehouse Basin round to Brentford

    Thames to Thames : Up the Lea Valley to Broxbourne for pint and food then back

  • ride will be extremely sociable, taking in as many of the capitals fine off licenses and green spaces as possible

  • Sounds good, canals lovely slow pace and can slack with a few days notice. 21st and 22nd?
