Breeze Bike Rides in Wandsworth

A pretty nine mile and mostly flat ride, along the river from Wandsworth to Hammersmith Bridge and back again. 

We start at Wandsworth Common, using back roads and shared cycle/pedestrian paths to avoid the busy Wandsworth one way system and then take us through Wandsworth Park along the Thames to Putney Bridge.  Here we will walk our bikes over the busy A3 and down to Putney Embankment (start point for the Oxford-Cambridge boat race), from where we have a lovely scenic ride past the rowing clubs and then along the off-road Thames Path to Hammersmith Bridge.

We will walk our bikes over Hammersmith Bridge, and then potter along the back roads on the Fulham side of the river, passing the River Cafe and Fulham Football Ground before enjoying views of the river again in Bishops Park.

From Putney Bridge, we will take back roads round the Hurlingham Club, before crossing Wandsworth Bridge on the cycle path, and finishing with a cafe stop at the Birdhouse Cafe at 123 St John's Hill, next to the London Cycle Workshop.

This ride is best suited to hybrid or mountain bikes, due to the off-road section from Putney to Hammersmith.

It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack. Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then. 

Everyone’s welcome – look forward to seeing you there!

    Michelle Miller Having lived in Manhattan and Central London, it is just in the last few years that I've started cycling again. At first, this meant just around my SW London neighborhood as a way to get around faster and then longer rides to Richmond Park. I so enjoyed the Breeze rides led by a fellow school mum, I decided to become a rider leader to keep sharing the thrill that comes with two wheels. My husband is a keen cyclist and we are excited as our two boys start to join us.

    See you soon!
    Michelle
