With the arrival of spring, and better weather, it’s the time of year when many people start to think about getting their bike out. Perhaps you’d like more time outside on sunny days, or to incorporate light exercise into your daily routine, or just to avoid the traffic more often. But where to start? Southwark Cyclists have a few suggestions!
For people wanting to start commuting by bike, there’s Spring Bike to Work day on Wednesday 26th April, or you can join our regular bike train to Blackfriars and beyond every Wednesday. Other routes available on request!
For people wanting something more leisure-orientated, there are gently paced Saturday rides exploring Southwark and neighbouring boroughs.
Or finally, there’s what I consider the ideal use of a bike: short trips for fun or errands that are much quicker and easier on two wheels than anything else.
