Beginning at Westferry Circus, the route follows an off-road route across the busy Limehouse Link, before heading onto residential roads.
From Newell Street the route crosses Limehouse Road and heads north-east onto the Limehouse Cut towpath. The route is then entirely traffic-free, running along the picturesque canal for its entirety, making it ideal for families and less experienced cyclists. During the weekend the towpath can be busy, so both cyclists and walkers should be mindful of other users, particularly those with dogs.
After the route passes Three Mills Green it leaves the towpath and joins Stratford High Street where the route ends.
