Wandle Wander

Meet : Richmond, Little Green (by library) by 10.45am.

We head down the Thames to Wandsworth then follow the River Wandle upstream using the Sustrans Wandle Trail with extensive off road (but smooth) sections. The riverside has echoes of constitutional and artistic history that we can contemplate over lunch before cutting back home via Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park. (passing a snuff mill and a gateway from Merton Priory relocated to the old centre of Merton - which is nowhere near Merton High Street !)

Wow record showing - 11 heads on 10 bikes. A bright and not-breezy day made for pleasant cycling and Merton Abbey Mills afforded a range of lunch opportunities.
