London is an old city and one in which the traces of its history often remain to enjoy to this day. Regent’s canal is an example of this. Once a vital artery used for transporting such raw materials as iron, steel and grain, it has now become a place of pleasures for such activities as boat cruising, walking and cycling.

If you are renting a bike from us at http://www.goodwheelrentabike.co.uk do yourself a big favour and take a ride from Central London to Canary Wharf along the Regent’s canal.

You will see London in all its diversity from the affluent areas surrounding Regent’s Park to the poorer areas as you head east and then to the second most important commercial hub in London – Canary Wharf.

The ride is a facsinating and diverse one. Along the sparkling waters you will pass, quaint little corners of London, traditional pubs, ducks geese and other wildlife, river barges, other cyclists, lots of hidden gems as well as housing estates in the less oppulent parts of London. This is indeed a riding experience to savour. You will learn far more about what makes London unique on this one hour ride then if you stick to just on-road Central London riding.

Click on the below link and get ready to start a journey into the past and into the present. The route ends in Canary Wharf and the River Thames where you will get a chance to marvel at the architecture and layout and see London’s future claim as a world commercial central.
