Greenwich Palaces cycle ride, south east London

An enjoyable 11 mile circuit taking in Greenwich, Blackheath and Charlton, this mostly flat ride takes you up to the riverside path where you get fine views of the Thames Barrier, the Millennium Dome and the shiny skyscrapers of the City. Although there are a few sections on quiet roads, the route is largely traffic free and reasonable safe for kids. You also get to see many of Greenwich's fine historic buildings, its beautiful park and the windy wide open spaces of Blackheath.
