The Guardian: Britain's Best Bike Rides

'Urban routes, family rides, long-distance tours, art trails and hill climbs'

Once again, the Guardian champions the cyclist with it's guide to rides. There's 20 of them in total in Part one of the newspaper's homage to cycling which, it claims, is officially cool again. If you bought today's Observer you've been lucky enough to pick up the second part, but as I've been busy doing 'stuff' today (going to M&S in Redhill to buy some much-needed clothes) I missed it.

Having said that, it's probably worth checking out the Guardian's website to see all the routes available to cyclists looking for a bit of fun. For NoVisibleLycra, the best one (and I think we should ride it) is the 12-mile Wandle Trail, which takes us from the south bank of the Thames to Wandle Park Tram Station in Croydon. The Guardian reckons it'll take two hours to complete and points out that 'much of the pleasure of this route comes from the multiple green spaces it crosses'.

According to The Guardian, 'Cycling is officially cool again – and not just for spandex warriors'.
