If you want to see London, we mean REALLY see London, you should get on a bike. There is something oh-so-wholesome about seeing your journey through start to finish at street level. If this is something that takes your fancy and you want to be all retro about it and leave the smart phone map app out the equation, Herb Lester have a solution.
Their new map London on Two Wheels is a collaboration with Tokyobike which shows four fun and easy routes that avoid crazy traffic hotspots.
The routes are:
Westward ho! Starts at Marylebone Lane and finishes at the V&A.
Take to the hill. Starts at Goodge Street and finishes at Primrose Hill.
Water, water everywhere. Starts at London Fields and finishes at Lamb’s Conduit Street.
A feast for the senses. Starts at Tower Bridge and finishes at Embankment.
You can try a different ride every weekend. Just one thing, don’t try and read a fully unfolded map while cycling. That’s frowned upon. Jude Brosnan
