- Road biking for fun in and around London – where and how?
When I lived down that way, my route out was the Lea valley towpath to Epping Forest, then out into Essexshire. Avoided A road madness or endless 1930s suburbs. This was pre GPS so I joined a club to find the best routes; nowadays you could try Strava etc but I have my suspicions it will be clogged up with suburban commutes, you’ll have to study it to sort the wheat from the chaff.
Edit ^^ that book looks ace, wish I’d had a copy.Posted 4 years agoreluctantlondonerMember
I’ve just picked up a 2nd road bike, but given that I live in the inner east of London I need to figure out where to ride it to have fun, get fitter and escape at least some of the main roads.
A shiny new Garmin will be arriving for my birthday, so how do I make the most it to discover routes?

The London Classic routes are ok if done early on a weekend – depends how ‘urban’ (and how many cobbles) you want:Posted 4 years ago
