The weather outside is…

An excuse to get on a bike with an Olive Cooper handbag? I think so…
Here are some of London’s best cycle routes:
The South Bank to Tower Bridge
You can’t beat the views of across the river. Plus, if you’re cycling between Thursday-Sunday, don’t forget to stop off for some food at Borough Market, near London Bridge.
Richmond is the largest Royal Park with plenty of designated paths and cycle lanes. Cycle along the steep descents of Broomfield Hill down to Robin Hood Gate and again between Kingston and Wimbledon gates.
Limehouse to Little Venice
Start in Limehouse by the yachts in the Marina, then head northwards through Dalston. From Dalston carry on along the canal towards Camden Town, past Regent’s Park towards the Grand Union Canal and finally arrive at Little Venice. Then, you may as well hop on one of the canal boats at Paddington Basin and enjoy the sunshine!
Thames Path and Olympic Park
Starting at the Cutty Sark in Greenwich, with a detour around the Greenwich Markets, cycle east on the Thames Path, past the Royal Naval College and the Millennium Dome to Woolwich. From Woolwich follow the Capital Ring through Beckton to the Greenway up to Pudding Mill Lane. Head north and you can see the Olympic velodrome.
