Lovely canal and road day trip to the London Canal Museum
At Outside Eastbury Road Post Office, 97 Eastbury Road, Watford
Meet Peter ready to leave at 9.30am
We ride out via Northwood Hills and Eastcote by road to Greenford then canal towpath to Kings Cross area Pub stop. We go to Little Venice and through the Zoo on the Regents Canal. Visit the London Canal Museum, Return on short stretch of canal towpath then roads via Regents Park, South Hampstead, Willesden Green, Gladstone Park, Dollis Hill, Kingsbury Green and Harrow Weald.
All good surfaces but a short stretch of the canal towpath can be a bit muddy and slippery so a good tread is needed on the tyres. 1,718’ of climbing but nothing challenging except for one short sharp hill in Dollis Hill which can be walked easily. Roads used are mainly quiet but some short stretches of busy major roads. Bike parking inside museum, locks needed for pub stop.
Okay for most bikes but tyre treads need to be suitable for reasonably surfaced canal towpaths, so probably not skinny slicks. The Pub does grub. Museum, entry fees: - £5 adult, £4 senior. More detail on http://www.canalmuseum.org.uk/visit/index.html.
This is a 45 mile Spokes MEDIUM pace Ride suitable for any bike. Peter's contact details are in the Autumn News Letter.
