We’re now a solid year into the New Normal, and one thing is clear: cycling is the way forwards. According to data from the Department of Transport, the number of people doing it went up by as much as 300% on some days last year. No wonder there have been queues snaking out of bike shops for months now.
If you’re looking to spend an afternoon with the wind in your hair and a bike seat beneath your bum, look no further. We’ve rounded up the most tremendous rides in the city – from Zone 1 zips that take you past all the tourist attractions (without you ever needed to board a tour bus) to trips out to London’s nature-packed edges, here’s our pick of challenging, fun and central cycle routes in London. Fancy something that’ll hurt your glutes a little more? Take a look at our list of tougher, hillier, longer bike rides from London.
