    Yes, from November to March we will run tours on a reduced schedule at 11am from Thursdays to Mondays, inclusive. Please see the tour page for full details.

  • Expand/Collapse 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.

  • Expand/Collapse What is your weather policy?

    We run tours rain or shine and have plenty of rain ponchos. We find tours in the rain to be a different kind of fun and an even more fun memory! If you have a reservation and the weather is really bad, you are welcome to reschedule the tour for any other day for up to year.

  • Expand/Collapse Do we stop for lunch?

    Yes. We usually stop near Trafalgar Square where there are plenty of options for lunch including to join your guide at a traditional English pub. Otherwise, we may stop in St James park next to a cafe.

  • Expand/Collapse Where does the tour end?

    Both tours finish at the same place they start.

  • Expand/Collapse Do we go inside the museums and monuments?

    No, the bike tours are an overview of the sites and more about getting a feel for the city. However, on private tours you can arrange to take extra time at the sites if you'd like to go inside.

  • Expand/Collapse Will we be able to take photos?

    Yes. There will be a chance to take many photos at the designated stops.

  • Expand/Collapse Is there a space to store bags or luggage?

    Yes. You are welcome to leave bags, luggage or unwanted family members in our garages. Someone is usually in the office and it will be locked up if they have to leave. While we have never had a single case of theft or loss of items, you do leave them at your own risk.

    Absolutely.

    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 for the lunch stop.

  • Expand/Collapse Do you have children's bikes?

    Yes. 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.

  • Expand/Collapse 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 trailers, tandems or baby seats. Due to limited availability, please book baby seats, trailers, tandems, 20” and 24” wheeled bikes in advance. 
    • 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.
  • Expand/Collapse 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.

  • Expand/Collapse Do you rent bikes?

    Yes, but, you must contact us ahead of time, especially during the summer when all the bikes may be taken up on the tours.

  • Expand/Collapse Can you suggest a bicycle repair shop in London?

    Our very excellent mechanic, Alex, is available to work on your bike so please feel free to get in contact with us if you would like to book your bike in with him: http://www.lezcycles.com/about.html

Royal London Bike Tour Reviews

Royal London Bike Tour - 11AM is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 350.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing family experience! We had been looking forward to this part of our trip since we learned about it! The day we scheduled it for was a total downpour so they were very kind and switching the day for us. Went on the tour with our four children ages eleven, nine, seven, and five. Our tour guide Nic was awesome, hilarious, so knowledgeable, best of all- incredible with our kids! He was always checking where they were making sure they were safe and comfortable and having as much fun as they could! We LOVED our tour!! If you were at all considering is my suggestion is do it! You won’t regret it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting ride-plenty to see This is our third time with Fat Tire, in a third city. I always enjoyed the previous tours, but was left a little disappointed with this one. There was only myself and my husband for the tour, and our guide seemed to be a little off on that day. He argued with many pedestrians who were walking on the cycle lanes, even though there was plenty of space, and while he was very pleasant with us, he was quite rude to any other tourists who tried to engage with us. This made us quite uncomfortable. We stopped for lunch half way through, and my partner and I weren't hungry, and as it was a cold day, would have preferred to keep going and finish early, however that wasn't really an option. the guide pointed out a few sandwich places and asked us to meet him back there in 45 minutes. The tour showed us everything of note, with plenty of opportunities to stop for pictures etc. I felt quite pressured to give a tip at the end, and while my partner complied, I wasn't terribly impressed. I am hoping our guide was just having a bad day, I would still recommend the tour to others, just remember to wrap up your fingers and wear a hat on the colder days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant tour! I had previously done the Paris bike tour (also superb), and convinced my family to do this one with me. It was fantastic! Great experience, excellent host, and a really fun way to see London.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastikos stories told by a guide; It was on our New Year's Eve, and we had nothing planned. The guide gave a lot of advise in dinning options!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royal London Tour a Must! Several of my friends recommended using Fat Tire Tours and I'm glad we did when in London. Even on our cold day we had a fun time on the Royal Tour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great day out in London I’ve lived in London for two years and already have seen or know a lot about Royal London. My young adult children were coming for the holidays so I thought it would be a great way to show them many sites, get a bit of history while being outside. We booked for Christmas Eve and everyone enjoyed it. Great way to spend a day in London with a knowledgable guide!
