The Oyster Wheel provides a series of Day rides designed for hybrid touring bikes and easily accessible from the Oyster/contactless rail and tube networks.

- A loop of eight rides together creating a complete circuit of London, with each day starting and finishing at an Oyster station – the Oyster Loop

The menu at the top of the page provides access to those rides, whilst the blog provides updates on progress.
