two nice routes, poached from a riding friend
Thanks - will do the east one later today
longer route to and through Epping forest, much gravel and nice roads, doable on 25mm too
nice. was it abit busy on the paths?
Not at all, a few people every now and then but surprisingly empty for a sunny Sunday.
These are great thanks guys anyone got any more recommendations?
any other suggestions, going up north ???
Did a off road(paved paths) with Marina the other day.
Lovely route up and over North London, this is the short version.
If you leave early you can knock out the one busy road (Green Lanes) to the start with no traffic.
You can also pop over to Trent Park at the top off that route.
I have been recording all my lockdown rides on Strava.
You might find something you like in there.
Also there is this.
The maps aren't displaying properly but all the links work.
thanks MA3K these look so nice I have just saved a tonne of them. I also put a call out for a gps you've inspired me to save up for one of those looks super useful.
Rode km40-44 on Sat when the missus showed me the only thatched house in Ealing and we went under the viaduct which I hadn't done since 2005.
Ealing Cycling has some short, easy, Covid-19 daily exercise routes in this area:
Stayer have put up some mixed surface routes near enough to London:
love that one, I do nearly the same
That viaduct is really two viaducts right next to each other.
Original train line was so popular it paid to buid the extra line.
we went under the viaduct

Oh my, you really have lost weight.
Where is this double viaduct?
Is it Wharncliffe over the Brent?
That's the one.
I might be able to find the photo of the intrepretation notice board.
I am suprised @hippy fit through there.
Would love to see that board, I only get up there once or twice a year, didn't know there was one.
Tell you what,
it's only a couple of miles away from me,
well maybe 6.
I'll try and cycle over there tomorrow,
take fresh pictures.
Ta, I've followed you on Strava. I've done a couple of your routes before and no doubt I will do some more.
Have you been to see thunderbird 4 in Thamesmead yet? Quite close to Crossness
No but it looks like you could get to it from the elevated Southern Outfall Sewer (Ridgeway) and get a two-for-one tourism deal then come back to town on the river.
The Ridgeway is the south equivalent of the Greenway from Hackney to Beckton.
Abbey Mills, Greenway, Woolwich, Crossness, Ridgeway
A poo related pilgrimage
