Traveling by bike around London can be dangerous. But this is a free way to get to anywhere in the city and an alternative to expensive transport. The residents of the capital know that using a bicycle, you can save a considerable amount. And it helps to keep yourself in shape. But before getting into the saddle, take note of a few important tips.
1. Big city.
It is easy to see that London is a big city. It has 32 districts (boroughs). Riding a bike is fine, but you need to take into account the distance that you have to overcome. On this transport it is very convenient to travel around the neighborhood - to shops and other places.
2. A bike-oriented city?
Not really ... You should think about the route. London, and especially its center, can`t be called “focused on cyclists”. There are bicycle paths, and this is already good, but be prepared for a busy traffic.
