Urban Skirmish III




Distance Elevation Gain Ride Type



Starting and finishing at London Waterloo station, this trip takes you across Lambeth Bridge to Parliament Square and to the Royal Loop of St. James' Palace and Buckingham Palace. A detour to the Royal Parks of Hyde Park and Regents Park (don't miss the Giraffes!) in all your cycling gear will make you feel right at home at these cycling hotspots.

Bring a tote to pop into the shops down Regent's Street and Piccadilly Circus before joining back up to the Thames via your trip down the Mall and Trafalgar Square. The cycleways down the Thames will have you looking up from your handlebars at London's most famous skyscrapers.

Cross the river at the famous Tower Bridge and stop off for a bite to eat at Borough Market showcasing London's best produce and culinary culture.

Finally a gentle pedal down the Queen's Walk on London's Southbank will link you back up to London Waterloo, for the train home.
