Ride info
The Pistachios to Pistachios bike ride is in two parts - Manor House Gardens,
Lewisham to Markfield Park, Tottenham. A 11 mile trip winding its way through
the parks and open spaces of South East to East London.

We leave Manor House Gardens cycle through Blackheath over the common, down
through Greenwich Park, through the foot tunnel (if this is closed arrangements will
be made to go on the DLR or Ferry ) over to Canary Wharf to Limehouse. We join
the Grand Union Canal picked up at the Limehouse Link, we then follow the canal to
Victoria Park, where we will stop at the Pistachios in the Park Kiosk for refreshments.
Then turn off to join the River Lee. The route will take us underneath the new
Olympic Stadium and Village. We shall ride along the River Lee to Markfield Park
Tottenham, where you can relax and enjoy a fun fair, pet zoo and experience the
steaming of the famous Markfield Steam engine.

The return trip for those who want to carryon riding is back along the canals to
Limehouse link, Canary Wharf following the signs to Greenwich foot tunnel, there
will be guides who you can tag along with for the return journey.

Those who do not wish to cycle back from Markfield Park can take a train from
Tottenham Hale station.
