A reprise of last year’s popular ride around the Poplar locations made famous by the TV series, based on true stories.
This is a gentle ride, suitable for all abilities. If you are a complete novice (sorry!) at riding on the road, please let us know ahead of time so that we can make sure we have enough marshal support.
Please read Anita’s excellent Risk Assessment if you’re joining the ride.

Newham Ride with a West Ham FC theme…
We will start at the Greenway Common Cafe (aka the View Tube) at 10.00am and visit sites with a West Ham connection, using mostly off road paths but with some (quiet) road sections. We will end up at Central Park, the recently revamped Red Lion, formerly known as the Hammers. About 12 miles with plenty of stops, including for coffee or other refreshment. Expected finishing time between 2.00 and 3.00pm.
Newham History Ride, led by Newham Cyclists in conjunction with Eastside Community Heritage as part of Newham Heritage Week.
Approx 15 miles. Mostly off road paths, some on road. Stops at points of interest, some with oral histories.
