I hope you are all well!
I am soon to be commuting from Harringey to Canary Wharf, Im just waiting for the bike to work scheme to kick in for me in the next couple of weeks!
Can anyone advise on a good route to get me started or better still if anyone here does the commute may I tag along to help familiarise myself.
I live just off Green Lanes so could meet in the morns at Manor House, Seven Sisters, Stamford Hill or anywhere close if that helps!
Thanks and looking forward to hearing from some of you,
for a scenic route head for where the a10 crosses the canal ..... green lanes > newington green > southgate rd > canal or down the a10 to canal
get on the canal all the way down to the limehouse basin then you're 5 - 10 mins from canary wharf all along quiet roads and thames path
Avoid Thames path after dark
Thanks Dicki, looks like a good route! Is it safe to cycle along the canal path with all the pedestrians that would be using it?
Part of the reasoning behind cycling is getting a bit fitter so I would be curious to know what kind of pace I could manage along the canal part of the route?
cant find this on google maps, where about is Thames Path?
there have been some mugging along by victoria park and up on walthamstow marshes in recent months, again all during the winter months and when it's dark
summer is coming though
nice for a gentle ride when required
thames paths runs north and south of the river in sections right on the riverside, it's not 100% complete though you have to duck and weave a bit
Appreciate the heads up Dicki! I think I will try stick to the main routes for now until I get used to the commute and route(s).
In your opinion is it a busy route for cyclists commuting in the morn and evening?
