The Hyde Park Pet Cemetery, the façade houses of Leinster Gardens, cycling down the narrowest street in London and the Mandela Way Tank. What do they all have in common? They are all a little bit random.
They also make for an amazingly quirky bike ride around London.
After visiting Lithuania who are well known for their quirkiness (On their equivalent of the river Thames they have arranged on one side flowers to spell out “I love you” and on the other “I love you too”). I wanted to find some quirky things in London.
Luckily I found out there are plenty! My favourite story is the one behind the Mandela Way tank. Anyway, I’ve put these together and made them into a great little cycle route around London.
You can grab that route for free by right clicking the link in this text, this text right here, or here, or here, or.. and choosing save file as and then saving it.
If you’re on a Mac then you don’t have a right click button so I have no idea what you do. Maybe go out and buy a computer then come back and download it.
The route is part of the London Cycling eBook I’ll be releasing tomorrow that has 25 awesome cycle routes around London.
And before I forget as a bonus if you join the newsletter then you get 3 more free routes. Which, In my biased opinion, I think is pretty cool! One of them will show you a great canal towpath route and the other will talk you through a great evening ride over the Thames bridges. You can join the newsletter by using the form in the top right.
If you have come across any more weird and wonderful things in London then I would love to hear about it in the comments.
