From Sally Eva of Southwark Cyclists, "Our route is the usual one; two parks, one traffic-calmed backstreet, the pavement-cycling lanes on the New Kent Road, the Elephant and Castle by-pass and onto the lovely new segregated cycle lanes. Everyone who tries it is converted.

We start from Nunhead Station at 8am; pick up at Peckham Rye station at 8.10am and meet a branch line coming in from Denmark Hill Station at 8.20am in Burgess Park. The departure point from Peckham Rye station is the bike stands behind McDonalds (west end of Holly Grove). We arrive at the north end of Blackfriars Bridge at 8.45am.

From there we take riders on individually. So far we have taken people to Kings Cross, Faringdon, Mayfair, Hyde Park and the Tower (not for incarceration). All this is free. Everyone is cheerful and no one fears for their life at any point.

Return rides are also arranged individually. Like real trains these are heart-stoppingly expensive. No that’s a joke. These are also cheerfully arranged and free. To join in mail southwark@lcc.org.uk or text Sally Eva on 07842 640 207 or just turn up."
