The Regents Canal (Willsden Junction to Waterloo) - Great for Newbies

As urban trails go this has to be one of the best in London. Slight decline downhill all the way, track\path terrain so any type of bike suitable with lots of great scenery.


Meeting up at Willesden Junction and the joining the Regents Canal in under 1 minute from the station, we can head down through Little Venice, around Regents Park past the bird cages and million pound mansions, through Camden lock, then Angel and drop down in to Limehouse Basin (close to the Tower of London).

(Not our video but we doff our cap to the creator)

As we pass a number of major train stations and food areas, there is opportunity to drop off the route as riders please or take refreshment. I am aim to finish at Waterloo Station.


The route would be suitable for mountain bikes, hybrids, folding and road bikes.

We have scheduled the event for this time to maximise quieter trains and roads. In terms of how you get to the start and from the finish I would recommend using the London TFL website checking engineering works that day too.

The route may vary a little due to challenges we hit on the day and each rider is responsible for their own health & safety.

The event will be cancelled giving a minimum of 48 hours notice if there is a risk of bad weather. By the same token, if you do not plan to attend please change your RSVP.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
