35 of the best cycle routes in London


Finding the best places to cycle in London is easy. They are all inside the above eBook!

The new version builds upon the previous 30 rides adding 5 more routes. If you’ve been following the blog for the past week then you may have spotted the teasers I posted. There’s the Swinley Forest “thing’s are going to get muddy” mountain bike route and the gentle ride around Hampstead Heath. This takes you to some of the most beautiful parts of North London.

Inside the expanded 35 route edition there are another two rides that are great for road cyclists. Perfect if you are looking for somewhere to stretch the legs and test out the road bike. The locations are must-see. There’s a beautiful ride around the Surrey Hills on a route dotted with the best in English pubs. There’s also a ride out by Epping Forest for those who prefer the road to the muddy trails.

On the other end of the scale, for those just getting started in their cycling adventures there’s a really gentle new ride in central London. It also makes an ideal ride for a family day out.

These new London cycle routes along with the 30 other rides, some of which have been revised, are available to download instantly by clicking here.

I find the eBook format to be the best for two reasons. The first is the flexibility. The eBook can be displayed on any device that can read PDF’s and that’s pretty much all devices these days. From your Android phone to your Kindle. Secondly, it gives you the choice to follow the ride in any way you want. Print out the map, follow it on your Garmin or load it up on your phone. It’s up to you!

The rides are scattered all over London so you can simply pick the one nearest to you or pick out the one that sounds most appealing. Each cycle route contains a number of recommended pub and cafe stops as well as interesting things to see along the way. It’s a great way to discover more of London.

With 100s of downloads since the first version was released in March of last year, we’ve also built up a nice bank of positive reviews that you can see here. Version three expands on the types of routes that were most requested from feedback.

For £9.95 you can download the 35 routes now from this link.

    What a great idea. I’m not from the UK, but I’m sure there are a lot of people over there who are very thankful you put this out. Nicely done.
