Christmas gift to London Cyclists

A Christmas ball hangs to the left of the words Merry Christmas from London Cyclist

Merry Christmas to everyone who reads London Cyclist! I hope you’ve stuffed yourself with food and had a great day with family and friends.

It’s a strange little English tradition that on Boxing Day we like to head out for a walk. Of course, this is London Cyclist, so walking is out the question! Instead, how about going on an awesome bike ride with your family or friends?

I’d like to send you seven awesome routes in and around London for free. To receive them, all you need to do is enter your first name and email in the box below:

The routes that are included are:

greenwich-foot-tunnelTower Bridge to Greenwich Park: If a friend visits me in London and is up for a little cycling I love to take them on this route. It follows a quiet route to Canary Wharf and then crosses under the Thames using the Greenwich Foot Tunnel. A remarkable sight in itself. On the other side there’s time to explore Greenwich Park before riding back for a nice meal with a view of Tower Bridge.

Mandela Way TankQuirky London: A great ride that takes you all around the centre of London. A good one for those who want to step away from the typical cliché tourist spots!



Merton Abbey MillsWandle trail: A ride for all ages following the river Wandle from Croydon to the Thames. On the way you visit numerous parks, attractions and welcoming pubs. The ride is well sign posted and the vast majority is traffic free.


Boris Bikes Hyde ParkBoris Bike Tour De Hyde Park: A ride for those who wish to try out the Boris cycle hire bikes and ride around the centre of London on a gentle, traffic free route. Great for families with young children!



hampsted-heath-lakeDiscovering Hampstead Heath: Another personal favourite of mine that visits tranquil spots around Hampstead Heath. You’ll discover a secluded pergola, the swimming ponds of Hampstead Heath and sweeping views over London.


thames-path-spring-greenThames Path to Richmond: Take a trip to Europe’s largest urban park with excellent views along the way of the Thames.



country-pubSurrey Hills Road Loop: A 25 mile ride that proves why Surrey is so popular with road cyclists. The route passes three magnificent pubs and gives you sweeping views over this beautiful part of the UK.
