A Curious London Bike Tour

Thursday 24 March 2011

Green, cheap and great exercise, not to mention enormous fun, cycling is becoming ever more popular. London has just expanded its cycle hire scheme to include casual users, which means visitors can hire bikes and cruise around for next to nothing. Just pay a £1 access fee for the day and then enjoy trips under 30 minutes for free or trips under an hour for an extra pound. So with this in mind and just a quid in our pocket, the UK Curiosity Blog team set out on a tour of Central London to uncover some of the capital’s more unusual sights. Check out our video highlights of the day then explore the map and the gallery below to see where else we went. Red markers on the map show docking points where you can pick up and drop off your bikes. Happy cycling! UKCB Bike Tour
