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.

Breeze Bike Rides in Wandsworth

We’ll head over to Wandsworth Common and downhill to Earlsfield, from where we take the mostly traffic-free Wandle Trail to pretty Morden Hall Park.  There’ll be 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 onto  Tooting Graveney and Tooting Bec Common.  We’ll then enjoy 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 best suited to hybrids and mountain bikes as the Wandle Trail and Morden Hall Park stretches are un-surfaced with loose stones, and can be muddy after rain.

The ride is mostly flat with a 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.

The ride is approximately 10 miles.

It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack.  Wearing a helmet is advisable as we will be out on the road.  If you have a spare inner tube great please bring one along but not to worry if you don’t.  It’s always good to take a few layers to cope with our British weather, a waterproof is always advisable.

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
