Benefits

  • Bring your children along to this specially designed family bike ride

Description

Bring your children along to this specially designed family bike ride! You’ll cycle along the River Thames, see the Pelicans in St James’ Park and Buckingham Palace — the home of the Royal Family. This tour is not all about cycling. There are plenty of stops along the way, too! You can stop to snap some pictures, feed some squirrels and sit down for a snack break. 

Your first stop will be to pick up something to eat along the way from one of the UK’s premier supermarkets. Once fully provisioned, you’ll go down the East-West Cycle Superhighway.

Crossing over Blackfriars Bridge, you will stop to take in the wonderful river view of London. From here you can see the castle-like Whitehall Court, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the wibbly wobbly skyline of The City of London.

Riding along the historic Embankment, you can take a break in one of London's secret parks! Here, the family will have a chance to kick back and play and sit down for a bite to eat. After you get moving again, you will come upon the Palace of Westminster and pass right underneath the golden splendour of Big Ben (and also learn its real name!). All of this will be done safely and securely thanks to the whooping £47million investment into the segregated Cycle Superhighway.

The next part of the tour will take you to St. James’s Park. Marvel at its lush gardens, home to rich wildlife where Black Swans and Russian Pelicans roam free. St. James’s Park is one of the Royal Parks of London and plays to the Royal tune – parades, flags and grandeur! Feel as regal as a Duchess as you cycle along Birdcage Walk to Buckingham Palace.

You will have another stop outside the Queen’s home of Buckingham Palace. Guess whether she is home or not, learn about the dark past of Green Park, and watch the Queen’s Guard with their black furry hats guarding the Palace. And in front of the Palace gates, there are fountains, statues and an opportunity to buy ice cream!

After that it will be time to head back. On your return, you’ll ride along the horse track that leads to the Horse Guards Parade Ground with the Queen’s Life Guard. They have been there since 1660, protecting the Royal Palace in the name of The United Kingdom.

Relax and enjoy the view as you rejoin the Cycle Superhighway back to our Kennington Road location!

How safe are the tours?

Since 1991 we have taken over 100,000 people cycling through London- with nothing more than a few bumps and scratched knees. We are proud of our safety record. Our guides are fully trained in safety. The tours do go on the road, however, our routes are designed so that most of the time we are in quiet back streets and on cycle paths. At the start of the tour, you will be given a full safety briefing, and your guide will always be on hand to help and make you feel as comfortable as possible.

Are the tours suitable for children?

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. If they are at least 10 years old, competent cyclists, and comfortable with some riding alongside traffic, then yes. Children younger than 10 are not be suitable for the group tours. Management or the tour guide will make the final decision on if a child can ride with the group. Adults are responsible for children and their safety at all times. To be sure that your young child can do a London bike tour, you should book a private tour for your family (all ages accepted on private tours, and we have a range of bikes to suit). 

Can a child ride in a tag along or child seat attachment on the tour?

Not on group tours. This is possible on a private tour only.

What are the Tour Guides like?

We are the only bike tour in London to have a large team of tour guides who are specialists in many different Languages. All our guides are super friendly and are trained in London knowledge, history, safety, leadership and customer service. 

Do the guides talk about the sights? Is there time for photographs?

Yes, that's the whole idea. They will stop at major sights and tell you what you’re looking at and interesting stories about it, plus giving you info about city life today.

Do tour prices include bicycle hire for the tour?

Yes
