Tower Hamlets Commuter Ride

Saturday 15th September at 10.00am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
St.Marks Gate, Victoria Park Cadogan Terrace E9 5HT
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
1 hours 40 mins  (1 hours 0 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

Sky Ride Local in Tower Hamlets

Tens of thousands of Londoners commute by bike because it is fast, easy and cheap.


If you’ve thought about commuting by bike but are worried about which route to use or the busy traffic why not join British Cycling on one of their ‘Give Commuting a Try’ rides.


Taking place on a Saturday morning, and led by trained British Cycling Ride Leaders, this free organised ride will cycle a typical commuter route into the heart of the city from your borough. The Ride Leaders will not only give you tips and advice on how to ride in busy traffic but also explain how to plan an effective commuter route for yourself.


Working in partnership with Tower Hamlets Council this ride from is from Victoria Park to Tower Bridge in the City of London utilising the Cycle Superhighway 3.  The ride is also an opportunity to meet other like-minded people who live near you and possibly find a bike buddy to commute with.


Please remember that the length of this ride is there and back so the commute will only be half that in a morning!


So in true London style ‘don’t be shy come and try!’.

  • John Nicholls John Nicholls Hi, this is my second year as a Sky Ride Leader. I am looking forward to meeting lots of new people and encourage them to ditch the car and hit the saddle.
