Once you make it out onto the Lea Valley Path you are getting close to Epping Forest, which is a favourite for mountain bike riders, but also has gentle paths that are suitable for beginners. If you don’t feel like cycling out there you can get there on the train. Epping Forest stretches from Chingford to Epping, and can be a great place in which to forget the city exists for
a day.
