This Cycle Quest is a challenging 50 mile circular route, designed to give a purpose to your leisure cycling. Croydon is one of London's most diverse boroughs, suburban to the north and delightfully rural to the south.
The Quest challenges you to visit 10 places of interest and answer a question to prove you were there. It is neither a treasure hunt nor a race. The ride can be done in a day by very fit cyclists or over a series of days for the casual rider or families. There are plenty of stations along the way to help break your journey.
The ride is designed to be ridden clockwise from East Croydon station but feel free to start wherever you like. The downloadable map isn't to scale so it is strongly recommended you obtain the free London Cycle Guide maps by clicking here.
The 10 Quest Points that this ride will visit are as follows:
Norwood Grove • Crystal Palace Park • South Norwood Country Park • Shirley Windmill • Farleigh Church • Kenley Aerodrome • Chaldon Church • The Webb Estate • Croydon Airport • Carew Manor.
