Get active at Quartet
Quartet is ideal for cycling enthusiasts. The development has an abundance of bike storage and for those looking for weekend cycle paths originating from their own home, then they need to look no further.
For those looking for something closer to home, head to the Woodberry Wetlands and take in the calming environment and views of this urban oasis and sailing reservoir. A haven for wildlife and the people in Hackney, there is 11 hectares of reed-fringed ponds and dykes, always free and accessible to everyone.
Head beyond the Common and you can head to the Walthamstow Wetlands. Comprising six reservoirs and the marshes, a 2km cycle path links all four new entrances within Walthamstow Wetlands, connecting the site to the borough’s cycling network which in turn opens the site to the wider Lee Valley and Olympic Park. A traffic free cycle path runs along the River Lea from Walthamstow Marshes to Banbury Reservoir. It follows National Cycle route 1 along the Lea Valley Walk passing Lockwood Reservoir, High Maynard Reservoir, Low Maynard Reservoir, East Warwick Reservoir and West Warwick Reservoir. The route starts at the Lea Valley Springfield Marina and follows the flat path to Tottenham Marshes for about 3 miles. It's a nice easy walk or ride with the option of continuing to Lea Valley Park and the William Girling Reservoir.
The Clapton boating pond will be a regular stop on the way and there are plenty of cycling paths connecting you through waterways and canals further afield. Stop off and watch some spectacular wildlife and birdlife at likes of Epping Forest, Waltham Abbey, Enfield Canal Lock and Greenwich and beyond.
Balancing life in the capital with your passion cycling could not be easier while living at Quartet.
