If you are stuck for places to cycle to over the weekend and fancy a pre-Dunwich challenge why not join this 80 mile round trip to the London Stone organised by the Southwark Cyclists. Starting at 9am on 18 June 2011 at Cutty Sark Gardens, Greenwich, the ride is described by The Bike Show as:
“fairly fast roads to Gravesend then more of a wayfaring feel to the ride to the Stone itself, maybe taking in some unsurfaced tracks. It’s estuary country, natural and spoiled in equal measure, wild and strange. Distant echoes of Conrad’s seafarers’ tales and Wilko Johnson’s guitar from across the water on Canvey Island. Here’s Iain Sinclair. We’ll have a coffee on the promenade at Gravesend and stop for lunch at a pub in Cooling.”
I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday… British Summertime weather permitting!
