Electric bike tour................

Despite the lack of any informed feedback to an earlier post about taking an electric bike tour. I decided to bite the bullet and give it a go.

It was incredible fun, as well as nice weather.

There were six of us, along with a guide who kept us informed and was able to explain the relevance of the various locations that we stopped at. As good as he was though, the real star of the day was the bike. I have not had so much fun on a bike since I was a kid and am seriously thinking of buying one when I get back home.

We booked our tour through www.londonelectricbiketour,com and have to say it was the highlight of our short stay in London. A great way to see London without having to work up a sweat.

Loved the spooky tunnel with all the graffiti and loved going up the hill by Buckingham Palace without having to pedal and people looking at us.

Seriously, this is a neat way to get around London town and have fun.

Thanks for the feedback - this definitely makes me want to do it one of these days although I probably never will.

What spooky tunnel ?

Constitution Hill is 1:37 not particularly steep ;-)

I take your point about the hill. But when you are in your mid 50’s and not as fit as what seems like 5 minutes ago (as far as my youth is concerned), it all counts as far as gradients are concerned.

The tunnel was underneath a big railway station near the ferris wheel. It had graffiti along the complete length, some of which was very good.

Must be one of the underpasses by Waterloo station. I think most Brits would regard a tunnel as something a little longer!
