London Tour de Y
Inspired by recent British success at the Tour de France, YMCAs across the capital are bringing the Tour de Y to London. This 70-mile cycle ride will take in many of London’s best parks and green spaces, including Richmond Park, Hyde Park, Regents Park, Alexandra Palace Park, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Victoria Park. If the prospect of 70 miles in the saddle is too daunting, there are shorter options including a 20 mile route taking in North London only. To read on click on: tell me more
