London 2012 Olympics
Riding a bike through London's clogged streets while avoiding being blindsided by a double decker can seem intimidating but, for the confident cyclist, getting around London by bike is a great choice.

Cycling Friendly Routes
You can order free cycling guides (UK addresses only) which will mark out all of the recommended cycling routes in each area.
