Ride a Boris Bike through the Science Museum

Danielle Goldstein

Nothing screams fun like doing something you know you shouldn't be. Splashing about in Trafalgar Square fountain, for instance, charging your phone on the Overground – which one Londoner was reprimanded for earlier this month – or taking a Boris Bike out of London. So it was music to our mischievous ears when we heard that Santander is organising bike rides through the Science Museum, London Zoo and Lambeth Palace.

F1 racer Jenson Button launched the Summer of Cycling initiative earlier this month, but it doesn't officially kick off until today. Getting a seat is only possible via a prize draw, which you can enter on Santander's website. Typically, all the initial dates have been snapped up, but you can apply for more after-hours Science Museum rides for August 12-14 right now. Applications are yet to open for the sunrise cycle at the Zoo and Open House tours (of which Lambeth Palace is included) that run September 11-13 and September 19-20, respectively. And for those gearing up to get their wheels around these London landmarks, know now that you'll have to ride one of the Santander cycles. Still, gliding past Apollo 10 is sure to produce a yelp of excitement regardless.
