We have a great selection of cycle routes around London for you, all planned on routes with good surfaces and not packed with cars. You’ll cycle along canal towpaths, segregated cycle lanes, bike routes through Royal parks as well as leafy quiet tree-lined roads.
Our London bike routes have been designed so you can use the Santander Bike Hire scheme which costs only £2 for 24 hours of bike access. So long as each period of use within the 24 hours is no longer than 30 minutes, it won’t cost you any more than the original £2 (if you need to extend beyond 30 minutes it is an extra £2 per 30 minutes until you drop off at another bike dock station). Our routes are all within the Bike Dock areas and we suggest sections of route which will take you only 20 minutes or so to complete, so you can dock your bike comfortably within the 30 minutes (usually). Then spend time seeing the area around that bike dock station, before taking another bike out for another 20 minute ride along our Walk Run Cycle route. All routes are circular so you can start/stop where you wish, but we make suggestions on route sections based on our route start/stop points.
