specialise in a half board 7 day fixed centre sightseeing cycling
holiday ,called currently London and The river Thames, by bike for a
minimum of 6 cyclists and a maximum of approximately 12 (this can be
increased slightly as the boats now take up to 14 bikes or I have in the
past used two boats. The hotel is situated in Gidea Park in The London
Borough of Havering.
Day I :- Arrive at our hotel between 3pm and 7 pm . Stay 6 nights.
A ride first of all to see the local area of country lanes, villages,
woods and country parks, The London Borough of Havering is one of
London's greenest with gently dramatic scenery.
3:- Travel by bike and train to take you and your bike on a river trip
to London and its famous sights with a fun ride through East London
Parks and side streets back to the hotel.
4 :- A train assisted ride to where the River Thames meets the sea at
Southend on sea which has the worlds longest pier at one and one third
miles. After sampling the wonderful sea food at the old fashioned town
of Leigh on sea we go off-road through Hadleigh Country park on an easy
to cycle route. Train home .
5 :- Cycle to the world heritage site at Greenwich taking our bikes on
the cable car high above the river Thames with extensive views in all
6 (usually Sun) :- Back up to London with train assistance there and
Back for a grand finale of iconic London sights . Too many to mention,
you name it we probably ride past it stopping for snippets of
information from yours truly.,
Day 7 :- The holiday finishes after breakfast.
Daily cycling distances will be up to 35 miles per day and although
there will be some hills the terrain is mostly flat and not very
demanding. In recent years superb dedicated cycle lanes have been laid
out in central London making cycling a joy to behold and not the
dangerous place of 10 or so years ago.
