This ride takes us to an opulent gothic mansion by the Thames to see an exhibition of glassware.

“This bold new exploration of glass in the UK brings together for the very first time rarely seen works from key UK collections, celebrating this remarkable material – unforgiving, fragile, strong, sustainable.
The Glass Heart will make you think again about glass as we explore how it has illuminated and contained human narratives and ideas.”

We will set off from Queens Gardens as usual and ride the Wandle Trail to the Thames and then the Thames Path downstream through Battersea Park, Vauxhall and Waterloo to cross Blackfriars Bridge. We will stop for lunch at a cafe en route for about an hour near the halfway point. After parking our bikes outside Temple Station we will walk to Two Temple Place for the exhibition, which is free and no booking required. That marks the end of the trip. We can return to Croydon from Blackfriars station whenever we like.
An adults only, slow-steady pace ride suitable for all conventional bikes but the narrowest road tyres. The total saddle time is around 165 minutes. The total time from Queens Gardens to Blackfriars including lunch: four hours. Two Temple Place closes at 16:30 on Sunday.
