Thames River Evening Bike Tour

  • Fat Tire Favorite
  • Fascinating History
  • London Original

Enjoy the Thames River Bike Tour.

Watch the sun set over the majestic river on our new River Thames Evening Bike Tour. This tour will cycle you through the heart of the city taking in many of the iconic London sites as well as getting a feel for the mystery and romance of London's riverside by twilight.

Don't miss an opportunity to watch the city's lights glistening over London Bridge from the comfy seat of one of our cruiser bikes! While the cycling is relaxed, our guests often find that it can be thirsty work so we make sure to pop into one of London's best local pubs along the way (drink included). Also please note that while the cycling is very leisurely we do ride on the road for parts of this tour and cycling competency and confidence is required.

FAQ

  • Expand/Collapse Are reservations required?

    A reservation is required due to a limited number of spaces on the tour.

     

  • Expand/Collapse What is your cancellation policy?

    We have a 72 hour cancellation policy for a full refund. If you miss the tour for any reason, we'll gladly reschedule you on another available tour anytime for up to a year. If you can't make it, it is a good idea to email us ahead of time.

     

  • Expand/Collapse Where is the 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.

     

  • Expand/Collapse Do tours run all year round?

    The River Thames tour is by reservations only. Please check the scheduling info on the tour page. Basically, if you can book it on our website, we're running it. And if not, do consider a private tour - if you have a decent size group (7+) or are willing to pay slightly more for the privilege, we will gladly create a bespoke tour for you at any time of the year.

     

  • Expand/Collapse 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 Tour.

     

  • 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 a break?

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

     

  • 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.

  • Expand/Collapse Do you provide the bikes?

    Absolutely.

  • Expand/Collapse Can I supply 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 for the lunch stop.

  • Expand/Collapse 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.
  • 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun biking tour Nick was a great guide...gave us lots of history along the way. Candidly I will have to say that biking along the Thames among the thousands of pedestrians was pretty challenging....walked my bike through the crowds quite a bit. Also, riding in the London traffic, especially across the London Bridge was at times harrowing....London drivers don't seem to respect bikers as much as in Paris. Overall, I'm glad we did the tour...lots of memories were made. We're still fans of Fat Tire Tours!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from night pedal This night ride along The Thames was such a load of fun. David worded us up with care about safety mingling with thousands of tourists who were on our pathway and on foot but who had right of way. See us thread or way single file through the crowd and we missed every single one! At each site where we stopped, I learnt more info and history. David's turn of phrase and jokes made it such good listening. I look back now and treasure all the things I did which I would not do on my own like ride on the road mixing it with the cars over Tower Bridge. Exhilerating! Thanks Dave. I just wanted a sticker as the one I have on my Ozzi car is wearing out and needs replacing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun tour! We took a Fat Tire Bike Tour in Paris a few years ago, so when I saw they did tours in London, I jumped on it! First the good: we took the evening tour so we could have more time during the day to walk around the city on our own. Our tour guide knew her history, took us to sights we never would have thought to explore, and kept us safe on the streets of London. As I was traveling with my daughter, I wish wish wish the website would have told us we would be making a stop at a local pub for nearly 1/2 hour. I know that pubs are supposed to be family friendly, but we were the only two in the entire place that weren't drinking alcohol. As I don't drink alcohol either, this was not so much fun. This was a surprise stop to me as there was nothing on the website saying this would be part of the tour. I definitely would have signed up for a different tour knowing this was the case. Also, at times, it was really difficult to hear our guide as she would talk away from the group when explaining a site. It's perhaps not fair to compare the Paris and London bike tours, but the Paris tour was far superior. Sorry, London! Our guides did their best, and the tour was fun, but, again, I wish I had known about the pub stop. Lastly, the tour is not as long as the website suggests, perhaps only 3 1/2 hours, which was completely fine, except that 1/2 hour of that was spent in the pub. If you have kids, perhaps go on one of their other tours, unless the pub time isn't an issue for you!
