Cycle Quietway 1

Cycle Quietway 1

The 'Quietways' are an emerging network of signed routes linking key destinations via backstreets, parks, waterways and tree-lined streets. They are designed for cyclists looking for a quieter, low-traffic route at a gentler pace to the Cycle Superhighways, such as CS2 which I walked recently.

There are seven Quietway routes planned to be opened by Spring 2017 and today's walk followed the first one of these to be finished. Quietway 1 (Q1) launched in June 2016 and connects Waterloo to Greenwich and runs through the Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich boroughs.

Distance: around 5.5 miles.
