Bike Tours in London

With eco-tourism fast becoming de-rigueur and Britain set to experience an uncharacteristically rain-free summer, now is the time to dig out your cycling shorts and pedal your way around the sights. Despite the traffic, London is a surprisingly bike-friendly city and the cycle bug has caught on quickly with commuters and tourists alike, seeing cycle tours springing up all over the city. Pedaling the city has many advantages, meaning you can bypass the major highways, cruise around regions often overlooked by tourists and burn off a few calories along the way.

Cycle routes abound in the city and it’s easy to access the sights – there’s a picturesque riverside route along the Thames and plenty of green spaces – Hyde park, Primrose Hill and Kew Gardens all offer great bike tracks or a particularly scenic route runs through St.James Park, right past Buckingham Palace. Further out of the city, why not explore the maritime treasures around Greenwich, where cycle routes run through Greenwich Park and alongside the river. Transport for London hires bikes for £1 a day but a bike tour is a great way to find your feet before taking to the streets alone.

Guided bike tours can take you around the highlights of London, helping you navigate the city streets while learning more about the history and culture of London. Or you can choose to bike further off the beaten path, checking out less visiting neighborhoods. And with the 2012 Olympics just around the corner, you may even chose to tour the key locations of the Games before the crowds take over.
Whether you hire a bike for the day or go with a guide, biking is a great way to get around the city, and it’s family-friendly too as you can rent baby seats, children’s bikes, tandem bikes and even pull-along buggies, so the whole family can get in on the action.
