What other riders think of this route

Sky Ride Local in Lewisham

If you’re fairly confident on your bike and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, rides take place on mainly quiet roads with plenty of sights along the way. Rides are between 6 and 20 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.

Join us on this brilliant 11 mile figure of eight route along The Waterlink Way to Lower Sydenham.  On our return there will be a stop at a little cafe.  We can then have our coffee and cake sitting under the unusual statue to Tsar Peter The Great and admiring the view along The Thames towards the Cutty Sark.
