Cycle for Fun!!

………. and get healthy too!!

There are loads of us in Leabank Square who love to cyle – and we are neatly situated in some of the most amazing areas to have a great afternoons cycle.

One route that is highly recommended – is to Springfield Park Café.

Simply turn right outside Leabank Square – Then follow the curves & kinks of Osborne Road.

Simply turn right outside Leabank Square – Then follow the curves & kinks of Osborne Road and at the t-junction in front of the Old Baths – turn right. You will see the hill over the canal bridge.

On the right hand side is the slipway onto the towpath. At the bottom turn right onto the towpath and take a lovely meander all along the canal for about an hour.

You will come to the Springfield Park Café alongside the Springfield Boat Club & Marina.

There are tables & chairs outside along the riverfront – and the prices are so very cheap. Go on – have a fry-up!! You’ve deserved it!!

Anyway – you’ll burn those calories off on the way back to Leabank Square!

So get that rusty old bike out – give it a bit of oil – and get out there!! Better still – chat to some other Leabankers – and get a regular cycle club going!!

I don't live in Leabank Square (unfortunately) but I loved this route.

Are there any more routes you can recommend to someone else who lives in Hackney Wick?

I'll check by this blog every now & then to see if anything comes up.

Cheers!!
