What you'll do

This is the shorter version of London's most popular Airbnb bike experience - 'Unseen London by Bicycle', with over two years and 1,000 guests!

In a small group, we'll explore two areas of London - the historic square mile of the City and vibrant & creative East London taking in 2,000 years of history in Roman London, through to re-generated and gentrified 'hipster' side of London where the street art paint is still wet and English isn't the first language of many residents.

As we ride, I will tell you lots of legends and stories about the characters who have shaped London history.

This ride is for you if:
- you want to see the historic neighbourhoods where people have lived and worked for centuries
- sitting on a tour bus is too passive
- you prefer to go off the beaten path and see the alternative sights of London (though we do get the best views of the Bridge over the River)
- you want to engage with a real Londoner who can give you honest opinions on all aspects of British life

You'll ride my personal collection of bikes, including the option to ride one of my bamboo mountain bikes or one of my carefully curated vintage town bikes.
Other things to note
Bring a camera and flat shoes for cycling.

My own experience cycling is the best way to explore, & own bikes from 4 continents. I've cycled extensively inc. LA, Tokyo, Nairobi, Bangkok, Yangoon, Toronto, Berlin, Manila...

Cambo is a wonderful guide--he really knows the territory including culture, biking culture, individual artists. We had a great time and would highly recommend this tour! He was especially great with our daughter, who is a younger but experienced biker, and had good restaurant recommendations as well.

Cambo was a fantastic tour guide who took us on an awesome bike journey around London. We got to see a lot of street art, including Banksy pieces. If you are visiting London, you have to go on this tour.

Cambo was a great guide around the City. As a Londoner we quite often take our magnificent city for granted and it was excited uncovering it's hidden gems from Cambo's perspective. He knows the history of London and especially it's street art and associated artists very well. My kids although very reluctant to go any sort of tour ended having the most fun they had on our little break and learned plenty about London that they did not know before. The cycling is all at a relaxed pace and tour can be suited to the group's interest. In our case Cambo opened up a special time slot to suit our groups ages. Thanks Cambo ! Had an awesome time !

I loved the bike tour and the three hours didn't even feel like so much time! He showed us places, where I wouldn't have gone to and I loved, that Combo showed us so much street art! Combo was really nice and also gave me Tipps. And the bikes have a really cool style. I really recommend it!!

Awesome way to spend 3 hours. Cambo shared a lot of his knowledge about street art which I had no previous insights into. We also got to see many hidden spots and sights I never knew existed having been in London for 7 years. Great way to spend an afternoon. Thank you.
