Are you fed up of sitting on a sightseeing bus all day? Would you rather hop on a bicycle and see the city from the street? Well... how about the Grand Bike Tour of London?

If you want to see the major landmarks, plus a few off-road places that the buses can't go, then this is the tour for you.

Highlights include the London Eye, Big Ben and Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and St. Paul's Cathedral. You will also hear some fun tales about London's amazing and sometimes bizarre history.

The price includes a bike, helmet, lights... plus a poncho in case it rains (this is London, after all). You get the rain for free.

Important note: You need to have experience of riding a bicycle in traffic. You will be cycling down some very busy main roads (actually on the road -- not on the pavement!), so this isn't a trip for beginners. The tour is definitely not suitable for children under the age of 8. The total distance travelled is approximately 7.5 miles, or 12.5 kilometers.

If you'd rather skip the guided tour and go around town on your own, then the easiest way is to hire a Boris Bike.
