Seafarers Memorial, Albert Embankment on lambethcyclists.org.ukStarting at a former dock used by Lambeth’s potteries, pausing at the site from where international shipping is regulated, we will then dart inland to see Britain’s naval headquarters, before returning to the river where port and lighthouse authorities have their bases.

We will dock for lunch and then flow downriver to view the fine maritime architecture of Greenwich.

Meet: 10.30am for 10.45am start at White Hart Dock, Albert Embankment, SE1 (corner of Black Prince Road)

The ride will be led by Tessa Wright; tel 07949 785258
