Plural Rides - local group cycles this summer

Lewisham Council says:

The Sky Ride Local this Sunday, 2 June (from 2pm-5pm), and get on your bike. Leaving from outside Matalan in Lewisham, the ride, classed as a ‘steady level’ will take you to Surrey Quays using  a mix of quiet back roads and where possible, off-road cycling.

There will be a different ride every two weeks on a Sunday from June until October and all are free. Led by friendly British Cycling Ride leaders along pre-planned routes, the rides are classed as ‘easy’, ‘steady’ and ‘challenging’.

The ‘easy’ rides are ideal for those who are new to cycling or families who prefer to ride off-road. The routes may be along the Waterlink Way for example or through different parks and open areas. The ‘steady’ rides are longer and combine quieter routes with off-road where possible. The ‘challenging’ rides are as you would expect longer and more strenuous, usually encountering a hill or two and moving at a quicker pace.
