Routes

Here are various rides we have planned for various occasions. We’ve put these up on Bikely (see links below) and from there you can download the route to your phone and take it with you on your ride.

Tip: On Bikely.com in the orange box at the top it asks “There’s a new version of this page available. Would you like to switch to it now?” click “Yes, take me there now” to see the new site. This has links to download GPX route-map files for your phone.

Commuter Rides

Here are some rides we’ve created to help people who are just starting to ride to work. We’ve tried to keep to quieter roads where possible. Often the ride back takes a slightly different route (one way roads etc), so we’ve made these separate routes.

We suggest this diversion if you're coming from the north or east and want to join the routes down to Leyton/Stratford

We suggest bypassing the main roads if you’re coming from the north or east and want to join the routes down to Leyton/Stratford.

Depending on where exactly you’re coming from you might not join the route right at the start.

Family Bike Club Rides

Here are a few of the routes the Family Bike Club have followed, as you would guess these are generally suitable for kids to ride accompanied. Most of the routes are round trips or include the return and are under 15 miles (25 km):

Viewing GPX files on the go

If you don’t have one you may need to download a free GPX viewer app for your phone. These allow you to view the route and your location plotted on a map. You can even turn your phone in to a little Sat-Nav by mounting it on your handle bars. There are lots of apps available for different devices, just search your app store for GPX.
