This week's events
Saturday 22nd October

Woodberry Wetlands is a haven for wildlife and people in Hackney: 17 hectares of reed-fringed ponds and dykes, always free and accessible to everyone. The reserve is five minutes' walk from the densely built up areas of Manor House, Stoke Newington and Woodberry Down. The contrast between the surrounding tower blocks and the wild wetland habitat with old oak trees is almost unbelievable. Minor roads with one big climb to Highgate. A leisurely ride – ideal for newcomers to group cycling. Approx 29km, average cycling speed on flat roads 16-20km/h, slower on the hills. Lunch in Coal House Cafe. TfL map 14.

Meet 10.15 outside Marylebone Station for 10.30 start. Returning to Marylebone about 16.00.

Welcome to Central London CTC
