It's that time of year again, when all us disorganised people start panicking about all the Christmas gifts we haven’t bought yet and how on earth to find that extra special  something for someone extra special. Don’t be alarmed, here at LBTC we have a couple of solutions for you. Here are some ideas for unique chrimbo gifts for bike bods and health fiends:

1.    See London together on a bicycle tour

Whether you live in London or are just visiting, there’s no better way to see our fine capital than from the saddle of a bike. You can tick off all of London’s top sights on a Central London tour or re-live the passion and fervour of London 2012 on our Olympic tour. Whizz along the river Thames to see the Southbank, Houses of Parliament and London Eye or glide alongside the serene canal paths observing the quirky lives of canalboat folk. For those Londoned out you can explore further afield in Hampton Court and its riverside surrounds, or even take a seaside daytrip to Hastings with our Bexhill Bicycle branch. There’s a tour to tingle everyone’s senses so what are you waiting for, buy one today for a truly unforgettable Christmas present!
