I have lived in London all my life and currently commute by cycle two or three times a week (Beckenham to Victoria - 10 miles each way). I am a member of a cycling club and typically do a 60 mile club ride on Saturdays. I have been cycling and sometimes commuting by bike in London for over 50 years, I have commuted and travelled around London using every form of transport including car, train, tube, motorbike, bus and the London Bike Scheme, and I still use all these options except motorbikes. I've taken to touring over the last couple of years and done cycle tours in Belgium/Holland and Italy/Slovenia/Croatia.
