Waterside

Rivers Thames, Lee, Colne and Wey account for most riverside riding. Much of it is on navigable waterway or adjoining canal, but the wetland landscape highlight is the Thames estuary, both banks. Flooded gravel pits, especially on Colne and Lee, have been turned into precious wetland wildlife habitats (see birdwatching). Top eight earn asterisks.
