The Wandle Trail to Morden Hall Park

Starting Point & Postcode
Wandsworth Common, Bolingbroke Grove, Wandsworth, London, SW11 6HN  SW11 6HN
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
1 hours 45 mins  (1 hours 45 mins cycling)

Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders


Breeze Bike Rides in Wandsworth

We'll meet on Wandsworth Common, opposite the Bolingbroke Academy at the corner of Wakehurst Road and Bolingbroke Grove.

Then we’ll go over Wandsworth Common and downhill to Earlsfield, from where we take the mostly traffic-free Wandle Trail to pretty Morden Hall Park.  There’ll be a chance to see the Parks' wetlands, streams and beautiful scenery.

We’ll then head back using quiet roads and climb gently uphill through Furzedown and Tooting Graveney onto Tooting Bec Common.  The Common is another traffic-free stretch before returning through Balham for our end-of-ride cafe stop at Pintus Cafe and Delicatessen on the Northcote Road.

The ride is best suited to hybrids and mountain bikes as the Wandle Trail and Morden Hall Park stretches are un-surfaced with loose stones, and are muddy and full of puddles after rain.

The ride is mostly flat with a short slow climb up to Tooting Bec Common towards the end of the ride.  Please feel free to get off your bike and push at this point.

Please come equipped for the weather, waterproofs if it's wet, full finger gloves, warm socks, scarf and a buff or something to cover your ears under your helmet if it's cold.

Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part. 

Please bring some money and your bicycle lock if you want to buy refreshments at the end of the ride.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Judith Kent
    Judith Kent When I hit 40, I got my family to buy me my first bike in 20 years so I could start commuting to work - with two small children at home it was the only way I could see to get some exercise into my daily routine. With the kids a little older, I then found I loved the cycling and wanted to do more - but got a bit bored going out on rides by myself. So I trained as a Breeze Champion and have really enjoyed getting out and exploring the parks and commons of South West London in company with other women. My rides start on either Wandsworth or Clapham Common, fit within school hours (for juggling mums like me) and finish with coffee at a local cafe. My profile picture shows me crossing the finish line at the Cycletta sportive on the Sussex Downs in September 2012. Five of us (complete sportive novices) from my regular Breeze rides thought we would give it a try, and we all made it round the 25 hilly miles.....since then a number of our Breeze riders have done other longer sportives and London to Brighton....others prefer to stick to gentle rides at a gentle pace and enjoy seeing some of London's sights along the way.....there's something for everyone....
