Buy a bike

Leaving this one so long is a crime. Top of any list of things to do in London should be to buy a bike.

Clearly it's not a "thing to do" in the same respect as a lot of things you might see on this website, but it does open the city up a huge amount, and makes the journeys enjoyable as well.

Travelling above ground, under your own steam, also helps you to learn how our great city fits together, and it's much better for you than being underground or on a bus, and 100% cheaper.

So consider your options today, and get shopping. Those in search of a top end bike could consider Bicycle Magic or Evans, whilst at the bottom end there's always, Gumtree or even Freecycle.

  1. Coincidence? I just added a link to this very blog last night to my new 'Real Cycling' blog (www.realcycling.co.uk)!

    On my blog is a suggested cycle tour of some London sights related to the Taking Liberties exhibition, which you link to on your blog.

    And, of course, I agree with you completely! Bike is just the best way to do the quirky places and cool things in London that you pick out: free at the point of use, not limited to timetables, faster than any other form of transport within Zone 1, and just great fun...
