"The London Cycling Guide" is the ultimate guide for London cyclists. There are 30 leisurely routes covering both inner and outer London. Each is described in detail with a series of points of interest also pinpointed on an accompanying route map. Boxed information with each route shows at-a-glance the start point, likely duration and some suggestions for where to eat and drink along the way. The book also covers important practical information on cycling, such as: choosing the right bike for your style of cycling; tips on urban cycling, social cycling and cycling with children; and, guidance on security and insurance as well as information on accessories and clothing. Finally a 14-page map section at the back shows all of the TfL cycling routes in central London. It is suitable for anyone who wants to begin or is already cycling in London - either for commuting or leisure.
