Ride to Cake Mountain
A Wheelers' classic, ride from Mile End Park to Upshire for the famous church teas and cakes. The ride to Upshire has a lot of traffic free sections up the Lee valley, then minor roads via Epping Forest. It's 21miles to Upshire, we'll stop in Chingford for lunch and then onto Upshire. Post-cake there are two options; an easy 4mile ride to Cheshunt station and then return by train or there will be another group that will return via the Lee valley to Tower Hamlets making the total distance around 36miles.
Although this ride is about 36miles in total, there are lots of drop out points to stations if you don't want to do the full route and the pace will be very leisurely, so it is suitable for beginners. Mostly flat day, save for one steep hill near Epping Forest but don't worry you can walk your bike up this one. No-one left behind. Suitable for all bikes and all ages.
Meet at the Green Bridge in Mile End Park at 09.00, or join at Springfield Marina if that is more convenient. We'll have a coffee stop there and won't leave before 10.00.
