Questions About our Bikes/Biking in London

Is the tour difficult?

No. Most of the time is spent on bike lanes within the Royal Parks. There is a bit of road riding and a few crossings so a basic level of cycling proficiency is required.

Do I need to reserve a bike separately?

No – the bike is included with the bike tour, so just bring yourself and we will take care of the rest!

Can I bring my own bike?

You are welcome to bring your own bicycle and will receive a discount of 10%. Our insurance only covers the theft of our own bicycles, so please do bring your own lock should we have a longer stop.

Is this tour appropriate for children?

Absolutely! We have loads of families and we’re a great family activity. We offer multiple bike options for children depending on their age, size, and riding ability. Please keep in mind that children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.

  • For children up to 12 years old or 45kg (100lbs) without good bike handling skills we offer 2-wheeled tandems that allow the passenger to pedal or coast, without having to maintain a high level of balance. All riders over 45kg (100lbs) must ride their own bicycle. We have various sized city bikes to accommodate just about every size of rider, from extra small 20 inch wheeled bikes for riders that are 3.3ft (100cm) to extra large for riders up to 6.5ft (198cm). Unfortunately, we do not have adult tricycles, adult tandems, or bikes with training wheels for adults or children that may be less confident in their riding ability.
  • There is no additional charge for tandems or baby seats. Due to limited availability, please book baby seats, tandems, 20” and 24” wheeled bikes in advance. We do NOT have toddler trailers. 
  • Please Note: All extra small 20 inch and small 24 inch bikes are equipped with both hand brakes.
  • 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.

Do you have children's bikes?

Yes! You can see all of our options here. We have kids bikes, tag-alongs and baby seats. Please make a reservation online if you have children in your group and let us know how many are with you, and their ages, in the NOTES section of your reservation – this way we can make sure we have the right sized bikes set aside for everyone in your 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.

Do you rent bikes?

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

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.
