Transport for London Cycle Guides

As I’m sure is quite clear, I am pretty new to cycling on the mean streets of London, so I was pleased to find out about a the set of cycle routes that Transport for London have produced to be given away free to as many people as request them. The maps span across 14 guides, each covering a different area / borough of London. They follow on one to another, so if all 14 were placed together, you would effectively have cycle routes for the whole of London.

The guides have been written in conjunction with ‘experienced cyclists’ which hopefully means that they will have been tried and tested, and actually be useful. There are various different routes on the maps, featuring signed council organised routes, along with “quieter” streets and shortcuts. All you have to do to get the guides is call TFL on 020 7222 1234, or fill on the online form at http://www.tfl.gov.uk/roadusers/cycling/11682.aspx .

There is also a ‘Mayor’s Introduction’, which is always good.
