If you fancy a morning ride before this year’s festivities, why not join local cycle group Greenwich Cyclists (www.greenwichcyclists.org.uk) on a feeder ride from Cutty Sark Gardens to the Plumstead Make Merry on Plumstead Common.
The ride, which is promoting Bike week, will set off at 10am on 7 June 2014 from Cutty Sark Gardens (near the foot tunnel entrance) and head along the Thames Path towards the Thames Barrier. After a short refreshment break, the ride will continue via Maryon Park before finishing at the Plumstead Make Merry on Plumstead Common.
Once at the festival, there will be more bike related activities including Dr Bike sessions, security marking by the Metropolitan Police and free guides to local cycle routes.
The ride will be easily paced for all including children but cyclists are advised to bring some water and a spare inner tube, just in case!
