Cycle Steps
1. The start point is on the boundary between Bexley/Crayford and Bexleyheath. Go towards Crayford. Keep an eye on traffic. you begin by following the river Cray along Crayford Way. At the roundabout at the end of the road, either go straight across, or take the first left, dismount, cross the road and turn into adjacent road (see Google maps). When you follow the road round, you will eventually connect to a footpath leading to Crayford Ness. You will pas the point where the river splits with the River Darenth. Follow footpath past Erith Saltings. You will have to use the roads to get back onto the Thames Path. Watch out for signs, and try and stick to the route I've indicated to avoid going down cyclist inaccesible paths. The rest of the path is signposted towards the Woolwich ferry. Once at the Woolwich Ferry, take first exit off roundabout. Follow high street until Wickham Lane, and the rest is self intuitive.
