Itinerary:

A little less cycling in this tour, but that's because there are so many great distractions!

A winding trail through richly diverse sights. Starting with the financial powerhouses of The City and stately Squares, we'll move effortlessly into Shoreditch, the Capital of Cool! First stop Columbia Road flower market, a great place for all with flower and plant stalls and 60 interesting local shops. From cup cakes to art galleries!

A short ride to Brick Lane which you can walk down at your leisure. No longer just known as the curry capital, it's now a melting pot of street culture. Designer and vintage clothing, food markets, bars and clubs, it's all here!

Spitalfields market combines history with cutting edge style and creativity. Voted Best London Market for the last two years and fully justified!

A change of scene beckons as we head towards the water and St Katherine's Docks. A stunning location with its marina of boats and great views of the Thames. Along the waterfront into Wapping where you'll see the modern transformation of wharf buildings into designer riverside living. An ornamental canal provides a nice cycle path for us to head back and over Tower Bridge to the finish.

There are numerous refreshment places along the way and we'll ensure we have a proper lunch stop to suit the group. If time permits we'll try and finish with a stop at a riverside pub.
