Rainham Marshes

Date: 30 March 2014
Meet: Cutty Sark Gardens,SE10 9LW (by foot tunnel entrance)
Time: 10.00 (or 11.00 at the Woolwich Arsenal “Little Men” Statues)
From Cutty Sark Gardens we will head east along the river path to Woolwich, and take the free ferry across the Thames. From North Woolwich we then follow the river for a short distance, and ride through the Gallions Reach industrial and retail parks, emerging onto Cycle Superhighway 3 on the A13 near Barking Creek. We then turn south and follow the riverside road through some more interesting Thames-side industrial land. At Dagenham we compete with car bootists but after the Ferry Lane industrial estates we will hit the riverside path by the edge of the marsh where we can lunch at the RSPB café (or bring your own). The return route is the reverse of the above.
The view of Canary Wharf from this edge of London can be beautiful, there are some lovely birds around the sanctuary, and dolphins sometimes cavort in the mother river.
The ride is 45-50 miles, so bring snacks, water, tools and a spare inner tube or two. Lights are advisable even though it will be summer time.
