Ride London FreeCycle

9:00am – 4:00pm
Free

Part of the Ride London festival. Get on your bike and see London’s top sights, free from traffic on an eight-mile circuit, which can be entered at any point.

The whole route starts and ends on the corner of Green Park and St James’s Park, though anyone is welcome to join at any point during the ride. The route includes views of Lincoln’s Inn Fields, Aldwych, South Bank, St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and Waterloo Bridge. Riders of all ages are invited to sign up, and bikes are available for hire. Groups and families are advised that the route is busiest from 12pm to 2pm.

If you need to pause the peddling (or you just feel like enjoying the festivities), there’s plenty of entertainment (and places to safely lock up your bikes) at the designated festival zones. There are also hydration stations, medical areas and bike mechanics to make sure you’re refreshed and can get help if you need it at each site.

If you’re wondering about getting to the course, there are led rides from each of the London boroughs in the morning and back in the late afternoon. Get details and sign up on the website here.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
