Under the intrepid leadership of Bill the hardy crew of Newham set out in poor looking weather for the third Newham Ride of theÂ 2016 calendar. Â Taking in the Lea Valley and the Isle of Dogs we crossed into Greenwich and followed the river round to the cable car. Â As this photo shows the weather did not improve south of theÂ river.
A return to Newham via the cable car did at least see the rain stop and we made it back to Stratford via the (now open to Stratford High St)Â Greenway.
The next ride is Essex Lanes on 26 June and our last scheduled Newham ride is 10 July.
Important:Â Please respond to the consultation on extending the lighting of the GreenwayÂ as a move towards creating a proper Quietway along its length.
The closing date is 17 June.
