As part of my training I wanted to cover about 20 miles on this mornings ride. Having cycled down to Woolwich and back on Saturday I thought I might do a similar route but on the north side of the river. It just so happens that the Barclay’s superhighway runs from Tower Hill out towards Beckton. Rather than cycling the entire superhighway I decided to pick up the Greenway somewhere between East Ham and Barking. If you don’t know the Greenway its a disused railway line that runs from Hackney wick to Beckton. Its raised and there are no cars, just the odd chav and their dog. Its generally pretty quiet.Using the Greenway allowed me to get my head down all the way to Stratford. From there I then cycled via Leyton back to Walthamstow. Alternatively when at Stratford you can continue to Hackney Wick taking in views of the Olympic site.All in all it was an enjoyable cycle. I don’t have a pedometer but I reckon I covered about 25 miles in less than 2 hours (I stopped along the way to take pictures).I’d be interested to hear of any other routes that come recommended by the fine citizens of Yeah Hackney.
