13 of us gathered at the View Tube in the Sunday morning gloom, with 12.5 bikes. Â With a spirit of undaunted adventure we nevertheless headed for south of the river, but not before seeing the new developments at Cody Dock (now open weekends), including theÂ innovative design for theÂ new bridge. Â We continued this year’s theme of sculpture by taking in 6 of theÂ 10 sculptures on the Sculpture Line started our inspection of the Sculpture Line, including works by Damien Hirst and Anthony Gormley. Â This was topped off by a short cruise on the Woolwich Ferry and a return along the Greenway. Â In the processÂ we discovered that the Greenway diversion has now been signed and various minor improvements completed.
A record 8 of us made it back to the View Tube – a thoroughly enjoyable 21 miles.Â by which time the sun had come out.
Our next Newham ride is 11 July
