What you'll do
We ride all through the year and we're winterproof. 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. We'll move onto some of my favourite neighbourhood spots, including iconic London markets depending on the day of the week
Mickey And Cambo
The route is based my experiences working in the City since he was 16, and living in the East End for 15 years. My view is the best way to explore is by bike & have bikes from 4 continents, and have cycled extensively inc. LA, Tokyo, Nairobi, Bangkok, Yangoon, Toronto, Berlin, Manila... Cambo's adopted home is London for the last 30 years on and off including schooling his daughter here. He brings the unique insight of being an Anglo-Phile citizen with the acute observations that only an Aussie can make.

Where you'll be
We begin on the edge of the City (Financial District), spotting the hidden beauty & history), before moving onto Whitechapel and Bethnal Green. I've lived, worked, explored, lunched and drunk here for more than 15 years.
