If you’re keen on cycling join the Critical Mass London Cycle Ride. Its an easy going, sociable ride which invites all types of people across London to join in! They usually last around 2 hours long, depending on the weather and are followed by a much needed respite at a central London pub or park.

The fun part is that the directions are spontaneously chosen along the route, so you’ll never know where you might end up!

The Critical Mass London Bike ride was set up to raise awareness and get people into cycling around London. The growing number of people joining every time also goes a long way in campaigns for better provisions for cyclists including more cycle friendly routes!

london street photographyWhat’s Free/Cheap? Free Entry

What’s cool about it? Its amazing the changes that London has undergone in so little time. The London Street Photography exhibition showcases over 200 photographs of everyday life from 1860 all the way into 2010 last year. Not only does the exhibition show changes in street photography as an art form, but also reflects the changing nature of life in London. You’ll see everything from horse-drawn cabs to modern day Londoners ‘caught on film’. The reviews of the exhibition have been mixed so far, but go along if London’s past and photographs of city life interest you.

Free,  Until Sun Sep 4, 10am-6pm daily, Museum of London, 150 London Wall, London, United Kingdom EC2Y 5HN, Map, Website
