Day out to the London Canal Museum near Kings Cross.
Meet at Eastbury Road Post Office, 97 Eastbury Road, Watford
Meet Peter Ready to be Away by 9.30am
We ride out via Northwood Hills and Eastcote by road to Greenford then canal towpath to Kings Cross. Visit the London Canal Museum, refreshment near the 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 café stop.
