Exercise once a day - I’m going to go out on my Brompton folder and do a circuit of a few miles. I’d like a few different ones. Who has a decent circuit to recommend, starting Zone One/City?
This is actually similar to my route as im from the Harringay area - though i cut through turnpike lane before Finsbury park, then onto holloway road, old street - swing back around to Angel Islington for a 5min breather then back home almost the same way. shooting straight down seven sisters road instead of returning to turnpike lane. Its roughly around 16miles.Finsbury, Clerkenwell and Bloomsbury are all interesting areas to explore if you appreciate history and old buildings. I wouldn't aim for riding circuits on the main roads though. It's much more pleasant to just have a nice random pootle down all the back streets and little alleys, just making it up as you go. The only great thing about the virus situation is the traffic is down to post-Christmas levels, but without the cold crappy weather, so I have been out several times in the last week after finishing work.
Some nice hills around there, and then you could always divert across to Highgate and try the West Hill and Swains lane.If you've got that much excess energy to burn off you can always venture in the other direction up into Muswell Hill and Ally Pally instead!
this exactly. last thing we want is an internet sensation/informally arranged meet-up. sod that. central london is very quiet at the moment - was there two days ago - just do your own thing.Just do your own thing keep it random don’t share and therefore potentially make it a regular for many.
don't you carry any tools/gear/food?I’ve been using my Brompton rather than my road bike to potter around the city, it’s just easier and a bit more robust a coping with state of the Oxford roads.

I’ve discovered all sorts of places I never knew existed, it’s also quite nice to just pop out a leisurely pace for an hour, I don’t feel the need to wear any cycling clothing or shoes on a Brompton, jeans and trainers work fine.
