London: Classic Gold 3.5-Hour Bike Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 3.5 hours
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.
This tour was our very best experience in London. It was informative, interesting and most of all lots of fun. Ollie, our guide, put us at ease immediately and took excellent care of us. The tour was suitable for all abilities. Thank you for a great experience.
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.
The tour was everything it promised and more. We even spotted the Queen leaving the Palace! Our guide, Olly, was entertaining and very informative. The single-gear cycles were easy to ride, and the tour overall, supremely fun.
Perfect and fun. the groop was small and the trip quiet easy to do. The traffic was friendly to bycicles.Olly had lots of energy and looked very good at us.
