Cycling holidays in London

There is no better way to get to know London than to hop on a bike and we offer a range of cycling holidays to, from, and around London. As local experts with over 25 years of experience in creating cycling holidays in Britain, we love sharing London’s extraordinarily rich local culture and history through our thoughtfully designed itineraries. There is a wonderful amount to take in as you pedal along - expect to encounter royal palaces, green parks, maritime history, traditional English pubs, local markets, landscape gardens, boutique shopping, world-class museums and galleries, historical houses, riverside landmarks and more.

We put a lot of thought and care into creating our routes so that they are mainly traffic-free, and take you past not just the headline attractions but also the hidden gems of London that most tourists never get to see. Unlike other providers, we research all our routes in person and create unusual itineraries together with locals who have the inside track on the best things to see and do in the area. Our Carter Company Adventure Handbook, will give you information on the history of the corner of London you are in and our tips for how to do London like a local and have an authentic English experience during your stay in the capital. We choose all accommodation for our tours on the basis of location, character and excellent service, and offer a choice between the best luxury hotels or classic stays.
