Alternative London Biking Tour
If you've got a taste for London's underground art scene then The Alternative London Bike Tour is perfect, offering tales of its interesting past and cultural present as well as tonnes of quirky street art you'd never be able to find otherwise.
The tours cycle at a relaxed pace so there's no need to worry if you're not super fit, and they take the quiet roads and cycle paths in small groups so you'll never feel left out.
They offer two different tour packages:-
Street Art Bike Tour
This allows you to bear witness to the finest street art around in Brick Lane, Shoreditch, Hackney and Islington as well as hidden pieces only known by the exclusive team at Alternative London Tours. You'll see over 100 pieces of art work from street artists like Banksy, Invade, Vhils and many more.
Tours leave from Old Street every Sunday at 10.30am for two hours at a cost of £12 per person including bikes and helmets.
Canal Bike Tour
Starting in East London with amazing views of the Olympic Park, the tour takes you from the modern architectural developments of Kings Cross through to the hustle and bustle of Camden Town and London's first eco-park all via the easy cycle paths along the canal network. Tours leave from Old Street every Saturday at 11am for three to four hours, costing £20 for adults, £16 for concessions and youths (13-17 years) and includes bikes and helmets.
