When I was working near home in Hampshire, I used to cycle the 10-mile each way commute every day. However, since starting work in London I haven't cycled at all (apart from the IOW Randonee). So, I've found out that I live far enough away (90 minutes) that SWT will let me take a bike on their trains in rush hour and I reckon that by swapping my tube journey for the bike, I can get rid of some of this excess lard. However, never having been overground in London, I am trying to find the best way from Waterloo to Canary Wharf. I can obviously look at Google Maps, but it's not obvious from that which roads I should be avoiding because of congestion, traffic lights, homocidal bus drivers, etc. My plan is the following route: Waterloo Rd > The Cut > Union Street > Southward Bridge Rd > Upper Thames St > Lower Thames St > E Smithfield > The Hwy > Narrow Street (just before Limehouse Link) > Along the shared path to Westferry Rd. Does this sound sensible, or does anyone have any better/quieter/quicker/safer suggestions?
