Cycling is a great way to see London

The Transport for London website can show you all the cycle routes and Cycle SurgeryLook Mum No Hands and Brick Lane Bikes shops, close to Canto Court student accommodation can deck you out in all the necessary safety gear.

If you don’t want to own your own bike, Santander Cycles is a really easy to use self-service bike-sharing scheme, which operates across the whole of central London. Prices are reasonable and depend on how long you use it and there are docking stations all over the city. You can pay with touchscreen wireless payments before heading out with zero fuss. We recommend that you invest in safety equipment as London’s roads are very busy. You can find out more about how the scheme works here.
