Free London Bike Tour

If you have been in London for at least one hour you might have noticed that bikes are gaining the upper hand in this city. So, to feel like a real Londoner, you already know what you need to do: look up on-line how to get on a bike ASAP!

Yesterday we talked about the weirdest tourist attractions in London, which are pretty cool, but the traditional ones need to be seen as well! Instead of spending your time in the overcrowded, expensive and extremely hot (in case of the Tube) public transport, biking through the city will offer the chance to see more sites in a shorter amount of time. Plus, you’ll get to explore the city with an experienced guide and there is no cost to attend the route, but guests are welcome to tip their tour guide at the end of the ride.


While biking and getting tanned (because hopefully it will be sunny for the rest of the year!) you will be able to gain a greater understanding of the history of the city, as well as have a deeper appreciation of the value placed on each location, which includes Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, and Trafalgar Square. Other notable locations that will be visited include the Royal Courts of Justice, River Thames, the Houses of Parliament, the Churchill War Bunker, Westminster Abbey, Pall Mall, the Horse guards Parade, St James’s Park, Nelsons Column, Lincolns Inn, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and a number of other popular sites. Pretty much everything!

This experience will be pretty amazing as you will have the chance to meet new people, take selfies with famous sites, and enjoy the leisure of riding a bike to different locations, all in two and a half hours. The meeting point for each ride is at the Costa Coffee, just outside of Lambeth North tube station. Guests are welcome to book a free spot on the tours and tip what they want after returning from the route. Each group remains limited in size to make the ride more enjoyable.

Check out everything you need to know at this website: or ask at the reception of your Astor Hostel for more info.

Have a great ride y’all!
