Our meeting point is St George's Leisure Centre, 1 minute from Shadwell Overground and DLR, where I will provide you with a bike and helmet for the session. From there, we will make an epic sweep of central London landmarks, markets vistas and parks. We will take in many famous sites including Tower Bridge, Parliament, St Pauls, Buckingham Palace, Regent's Park, Camden Town and many many more. We will also explore nooks and crannies, pass ambassadors residences, see graffiti, giraffes (probably) hipsters (definitely). We will climb above the hoi-poloi, raise our heart rate and gaze sweaty upon the epic vista. We will bear witness to, indeed we will become, the noisy, crazy, calm, sweet, ridiculous, beautiful tableau that is a day in London. We will also stop at one of my favourite pubs or cafes, depending on the groups preference.

Bottle of water and mars - to get you over the line if needed
Good new bike and helmet. Well, maintained and appropriate for the ride. Range of sizes available.
Central London landmarks, appearing unexpected from medieval alleys. Little known riverside docks, famous and not-famous markets, many different neighbourhoods. Haverstock Hill and/or Swain's Lane - these are the two most substantial climbs in north London. You must be relatively fit.

This is a substantial bike ride of circa 20 miles with some climbing. Participants must be confident cyclists. We won't be able to stop for lots of photos, some, but not lots.
