Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace
(Cycle Guide 4, 14)
Between Finsbury Park and Alexandra Palace you can ride along the Parkland Walk, a disused railway line that has become the countryside in the city. There is a gap between two sections of the walk, where you can either ride through Queen’s Wood or along the road: Highgate Wood is closed to bikes. The whole journey takes under an hour. You could also take a diversion south from the Parkland Walk to pass Highgate Cemetery and visit Hampstead Heath, which has two cycle paths running through it.
