Oyster Wheel

The Oyster Loop is an eight-day circuit of London for hybrid bikes using Oyster/contactless cards to get to rail/tube stations at the start and end of each day. The advantage of starting and finishing rides at Oyster card stations is the ease of getting through the station with a bike. Each day consists of a ride of 50-70km suitable for a hybrid bike, culminating in the ascent of Box Hill.

You pass North Downs viewpoints, historic castles, palaces, houses and churches, and pretty villages with cafes and pubs along the way too. It goes ‘off-road’ whenever possible, riding along disused railways, river valleys and canal towpaths, through historic forests and along ancient track ways, enjoying the countryside before finishing with the iconic ascent of Box Hill.
