Epping Forest - Copped Hall - Greensted Green Loop ride
Medium Paced ride, mainly on tarmac roads with some sections on gravelly track. Suitable for most road bikes and touring bikes. We will ride to High Beech in the heart of Epping Forest for tea. Then head to the Copped Hall estate http://www.coppedhalltrust.org.uk/ then cycle through quiet, rural roads to Greensted Church http://www.greenstedchurch.org.uk/ the oldest wooden church in the world where we will picnic. Then cycle through pretty, meandering lanes via Stanford rivers to Lambourne End where will stop for a swift pub drink. At Woodford Bridge we will get on the Roding Valley path (compact cinder track) all the way to Wanstead and the ride will end outside the Theatre Royale Bar, Stratford. Bring a packed lunch.
