I found it difficult just get on the bike and start pedalling. I would recommend a 5 minute off road period to get a feel of the bike starting: pedalling, checking gears and readjusting seat height BEFORE going out onto the road. I am an experienced road cyclist and even I found the adjustment to a strange bike frustrating and it was not until we got to Parliament Square that I began to feel comfortable. I was not aware of any instructions being given bout how to use the gears before we started, which to a novice cyclist would have been pretty important to know. Personally, I think everyone should have worn a bicycle helmet, especially the guide. I realise it is not mandatory in the UK, but I know from personal experience that helmets prevent serious injury.
We had a very enjoyable ride through the streets of London, accompanied by an easy going and knowledgeable tour guide. We were able to cover more ground with the bike than on foot and at an easy pace. A great way to get to know London's landmarks.
Paul was an amazing tour guide! Took us at our own pace with an 11 year old girl and 13 year old boy. Would do it again next time we head to London for sure. Thanks for a great afternoon!
Arrived 15 minutes late and joined the original London trip at 2pm with George (and Robert the boss). Quite interesting and inspiring. Highly recommended!
I would never try to cycle around London as a tourist and this was a great way to combine a love of cycling and taking in the sights of London.
