Good to Know
  • The River Thames Bike Tour spends more time on roads than our Royal London Bike Tour, therefore we recommend this tour for those aged 12 and older. Due to safety concerns for all riders, children under 12 will not be permitted on tour.
  • The cycling is not intimidating or strenuous but if you are not a confident cyclist, our Royal London Tour will be the better tour for you.

Questions About our Bikes/Biking in London

Is the tour difficult?

There is a lot more road riding on this tour so you must be confident on a bike. It is not strenuous but is a little bit longer and a touch more intimidating than our Royal London Bike Tour.

Is this tour appropriate for children?

We’re a great family activity in London, however we recommend our River Thames and River Thames Evening Bike Tours for those aged 12 and older. Children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.

  • Unfortunately, we do not have adult tricycles, tandems, or bikes with training wheels for adults or children that may be less confident in their riding ability.
  • Our city tours are very casual, with only slight elevation changes on varying surfaces including smooth gravel and pavement. It is necessary, however, that any person participating in our bike tours have at least some bike riding experience, and should be comfortable riding in a group.

Is a helmet included?

Yes. You are not compelled by law to wear helmets in the UK, but we have more than enough for everyone so the choice is entirely yours.

Can you suggest a bicycle repair shop in London?

Our very excellent mechanic, Alex, is available to work on your bike! Feel free to get in contact with us if you need some expert bike assistance.

Do you rent bikes?

Yes!  Please reserve ahead of time via our London Bike Rentals page so that we can prepare your bike(s).

General Tour Questions

Where is the tour meeting point?

The morning and evening tours meet directly outside Southwark Underground Station (Jubilee Line) where you will see your guide with one of our beach cruiser style bikes and holding a sign.

Do we stop for lunch?

Yes. On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays we stop at Borough market, London’s oldest and most atmospheric food market, which has a huge selection of food from around the world. On every other day you will have the option of cafes, a fish & chip restaurant or a pub.

Please note that the cost of lunch is not included in the tour. You are also welcome to bring your own lunch with you.

Do we stop for a break?

Yes. We stop about half way into the tour for a drink at a 400 year old pub (drink included).
