Family Cycle Rides In London

Strap on your helmet and have a family day out

Going for a bike ride is a fun and healthy way to get outdoors, enjoy the fresh air and experience the sites and scenery London has to offer. There are plenty of family friendly and easy cycle rides around the city, meaning everyone can join in.

Before you head out for your ride, don't forget to make sure that everyone who is riding a bike is wearing a helmet and to give way to pedestrians using shared paths.

Here's some of our favourites:

1. Bushy and Richmond Parks

Bushy and Richmond Parks are part of London's Royal Parks and offer beautiful, safe and picturesque cycle paths that are very family friendly. There are plenty of different routes to try as both parks are very large, so you'll have plenty to choose from.

Head away from the hectic roads of the city and enjoy the peace and quiet of the parks. There's also plenty of nature and wildlife to keep an eye out for, including the magnificent deer. Bushy Park has a fantastic playground too, so perhaps head there for a play to break up your ride.

Both parks are located in South West London, near Richmond, Kingston and Hampton Court stations. For more information on Bushy Park, see here and for more information on Richmond Park, see here.

2. Swinley Forest

Swinley Forest, located near Bracknell, is a favourite for family cycle rides. The forest has 24 kilometres of purpose-built, all weather, marked mountain bike trails and are suitable for all levels of riders, from beginners to advanced. Enjoy a ride within natural beauty and tranquillity.

For all your bike riding needs at Swinley Forest, contact Swinley Bike Hub which is an independent, rider owned hire centre and trail shop.

3. Morden Hall Park

Morden Hall Park is perfect for families with young children to cycle at as it's flat and easy to ride around. There are several trails to choose from and during the school holidays bike hire is available. Be sure to stop at the wonderful natural play area, the Potting Shed cafe or Deen City Farm for a pit stop from your ride.

4. Thames Path National Trail

Starting from the source of the Thames in the Cotswolds and heading through the heart of London to its finishing point at The Thames Barrier in Greenwich is the Thames Path, offering miles of traffic-free cycle routes. Cycle through pretty London suburban towns, stop off at a riverside pub for lunch or cycle alongside some of Central London's famous sites.
