London is a great place to explore, and there's lots of ways for you to discover interesting and quieter routes away from the busy main roads. Often, the quiet routes can be quicker as there's no big junctions or traffic lights to slow you down.
Have a look at the links below to see if you can find quiet roads, parks, canals or riverside routes to improve your journey.
Our London version of CycleStreets offers 3 types of route for every journey. We'll leave it up to you to decide whether you prefer a fast, balanced or quiet route! You can quickly plan your route from the front page of our website, plan a route elsewhere in the country via the CycleStreets website or download the free CycleStreets app for your mobile phone.
Transport for London have recently added 'bicycle' to their new journey planner options - you can also choose to make part of your journey by hire bicycle.
