London is buzzing today with the news that, for one remarkable day, many of the capital's roads will be completely traffic-free and open only to cyclists.
Londoners – from Brixtoners on BMXs to Crouch Enders on choppers – will be coming from far and wide to ride down the city’s most famous roads, taking in sights like London Eye, Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace. It’s open to everyone and completely free to sign up.
Not content with taking over the roads of the capital, cyclists are also taking over one of London’s most beautiful parks, with The Freewheel Festival.
From midday, St James’s Park will be buzzing with entertainment, stalls and more. So, when they’ve had enough of enjoying the capital on two wheels, Londoners can leave their bikes in the secure park, take a break, and check out what's on.
