DIY Lock Down Rides

Whilst we all grappled with the Coronavirus pandemic, The Fridays was unable to run any large group rides.   Instead, we instigated a series of smaller rides compliant with government policy on gatherings and social distancing.    Some of these we have made available as self-guided themed rides around London which you may like to use.  These are based on the series of Sunday London Rides that have been run over the past few years. Each of these has a downloadable route, and accompanying notes.

Sunday London Ride: It's A Bit Of An Animal - a gentle 18 miles exploring sites in London with an animal connection. Starts at Hyde Park Corner and ends at Russell Square.
