Sunday 22nd September, a bright start, with a wet day forecast, didn’t deter 17 Cyclists remember the start from New Malden, via West Barnes, Cannon Hill, Merton park, South Wimbledon, the ‘Wandle trail’ to Earlsfield, Wandsworth Common, Clapham Common, Clapham, Vauxhall, ‘Cycle super highway 5’, (CS5), across Vauxhall Bridge to Pimlico for lunch at the very Popular ‘White Swan’, fortuitously the 1 heavy Shower occuring whilst we enjoyedd lunch, but with light drizzle & more predicted, 3 people decided to find an alternative option, the remainder continued via Westminster, to CS3 & Victoria Embankment, (Photo with Big Ben, the Elizabeth Tower, swathed in Scaffolding), to Southwark Bridge, -alas we had all forgotten our ‘Yoga mats’, so were unable to join the fun on Tower Bridge, see BBC report -, Southwark, where a navigational mishap led to Kennington, Kennington Park, instead of Burgess Park, back on track in Loughborough, Brockwell Park, with ‘threatening’ Black clouds, a ‘strategic decision was taken for an indoor Tea & Bread pudding stop at ‘Brockwell hall Cafe’, Tulse hill, Streatham Hill, Tooting Bec Common, Tooting, Colliers wood, Wimbledon Chase, Raynes park, & the still lovely new track to New Malden. Total 31 Miles, 1 new face, thanks to John E for back marking, and many others for marking corners, as always, thanks to John D for the BP.
