Service Description

Join us on our free longer social led-ride from Charlton Park to Gallions Reach Park and then back via the Maryon Park. This ride is suitable for adults and children aged 11 and above who can ride with good control. This ride will be mainly traffic-free but will also involve some roads and junctions. It's a hilly route at the start and finish so cycles with gears are recommended. Our ride leaders will be there to offer support on all sections of the journey. The route will take us from Charlton Park down to the Thames Path and onto Woolwich, before reaching Gallions Reach Park, where riders can choose to climb Gallions Tor for views over London! After taking in the views and enjoying a short break, we'll ride back to Charlton Park via the Thames Barrier and Maryon Park. The ride will depart at 9.45am sharp from outside the front of the beautiful Charlton House (Charlton House Charlton Road, Charlton SE7 8RE), which dates back to the Jacobean period. Please arrive at 9.30am so we can start the ride on time! You’ll need to bring your own cycle, which should be in good working order. Remember to wear comfortable clothes that are suitable for the weather. We recommend you bring a snack and something to drink for the ride. This ride is individuals living or working in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Any children attending the led-ride must be supervised. Please complete the sign up form to register for the free ride (you can book a maximum of 3 riders on this ride). Places will be filled on a first come, first served basis. If you don't get a place, email us and we can add you to a mailing list to notify you about future rides. Happy Cycling!

Cancellation Policy

CANCELLATION POLICY: If, due to unforeseen circumstances, you need to cancel your attendance on the led-ride, please do so as soon as possible: The rides are funded by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and we want to ensure that the rides are as well-attended as possible. If you are no longer able to attend but you have a friend or family member who would be able to attend in your / the relevant rider's place using your booking, then this will be fine with us so long as they complete the relevant consent form prior to attending the ride. In these cases, you do not need to rebook on the system. If, for any unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to deliver the ride (such as due to your instructor / ride leader being unwell), we will endeavour to notify you as soon as possible. CANCELLATIONS FOR POOR WEATHER: It's very rare that rides need to be cancelled for poor weather. Through riders and coaches dressing appropriately for their sessions, it is expected that rides will still take place in temperamental weather like sporadic or light rain. However, rides may be cancelled in the following situations: - When there is persistent and heavy rain forecast for the ride. - If there are weather warnings such as for high winds / gusts. - Extreme hot or cold weather. - Icy or snowy conditions. We kindly ask that you do everything you can to attend any ride that you've booked with us, and if you have concerns about your ability to attend, then please get in touch with us as soon as you can. Thank you!
