Cycle Steps
This is a relatively flat, mainly off road route that uses the River and Canal paths, the Greenway and some link roads. You also neeed to watch out for local diversions re the Olympic Park.
From the Cutty Sark at Greenwich, head East on the Thames path, past the Royal Naval College, Millenium Dome and Thames Barrier to Woolwich. Take the Foot Tunnel or Ferry across the river and continue East, following the river. Follow the Capital Ring through Beckton and then to the Greenway up to Pudding Mill Lane. Continue North to View the Olympic Park, with the Velodrome at Temple Mills (watch out for local diversions / blocks)

Backtrack to Pudding Mill Lane and thence to Three Mills, Limehouse Cut to Limehouse Basin. Follow the river, then wind your way to Island Gardens with a return through the foot tunnel to Greenwich

Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Cutty Sark, Royal Naval College, Millenium Dome, Thames Barrier, Olympic Park, with the Velodrome.

It's a great cycling route, took us about 3hrs. Just need to note that the most of the Thames path along the Greenwich peninsular and the Greenwich foot tunnel are close. The best bit is the route along canal through Lee Valley leading to Lime House.
