    Bike London is the definitive guide to cycling in the UK's capital. The cycling culture in London is constantly evolving and this book offers an indispensable resource for the city's bike users - whether they're weather-hardened commuters who ride in all conditions or summer daytrippers looking to explore. This book covers all things two-wheeled, from local cycle shops and essential cafe stops, to ideas for routes and events that will appeal to all breeds of bike lover.

    More than a mere directory, Bike London speaks to important players in the city's cycling community, while also looking back and offering interesting facts and snippets of information from London's 100-year-plus love affair with the bicycle.

    As London embraces a greener future, this book is a timely resource that will help you put words into action.

    Each chapter is categorised by theme: Local Bike Shops, Cycling Clubs, Cycling Events, Cycling Locations, Cycling Routes, Cycling Equipment, Cycling Apparel, Cycling Cafes, Cycle Hire and Iconic London Cyclists. Throughout, Bike London will also feature profiles of some of the great and the good of London cycling, from Bradley Wiggins and Paul Smith to Tahnée Seagrave, Tao Geoghegan Hart, Maurice Burton and Jeremy Vine.

    About the Author
    Charlie Allenby is an established cycling journalist and has written about all things two-wheeled for titles as varied as Time Out London, Bike Radar and Red Bull. He's always been a lover of pedal-powered fun and decided to combine his two passions - riding and writing about riding - back in 2013. When not writing about bikes, he can either be found weaving his way through traffic in central London on his sturdy steel single speed or exploring the country lanes that wind their way around the city's outskirts on his weekend-best road bike.
