What you'll do
If you are interested in taking this tour please contact me and I will open up the date you require on my calendar immediately. I will welcome you at my hundred year old house, provide you with a high quality bicycle and take you on a fascinating bike ride along the River Wandle until it joins the River Thames. We will then cycle along the banks of the River Thames on a scenic bike path through exciting urban developments blended in with beautiful buildings and bridges from past periods and romantic houseboats. We will ride through Battersea Park with its amazing pagoda and will enjoy the beautiful views towards magnificent Albert Bridge and Chelsea. You will be able to admire the incredible restoration of the gigantic Battersee power station famously featured on the cover of the album 'Animals' by the legendary rock band Pink Floyd. We will stop for drinks and refreshments before turning back to my house. The beauty of this bike tour is that I have designed it to be almost completely away from traffic, so you can relax and enjoy this wonderful part of London.
I am a lover of cycling and all aspects of London. I cycled in many parts of the world and I can also speak Spanish and German. I have been living in South West London for over 20 years and made it my home. I am a qualified teacher and my passion and knowledge of this part of town has enabled me to design unique bike tours that are the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of central London. Guests already love my other bike tour, London's Best Kept Secret, so I have decided to add a new equally fabulous bike tour.

We will visit the stunning redevelopment of the Battersee power station having drinks and/or refreshments before turning back to my house.
