Central London will be closed off to motorised traffic, allowing cyclists, experienced or otherwise, to take over the city for a day. The route takes in plenty of London’s best sites and landmarks – it’s a wonderfully laidback way to see the capital, much of which can be overlooked when you’re stuck on the Tube or dodging traffic.

September 4. Free
Anywhere on the route, but headquarters at St James’s Park
