The New Year is all about a new start and what better way to kick off 2017 than with a new healthy regime. MBNA Thames Clippers is the perfect way to travel around London with a bike, with up to 10 dedicated bikes spaces on board each boat, meaning you can fit in some extra exercise travelling to and from the office or by heading to one of London’s top parks.
Hop off the boat with your bike at Greenwich Pier and head to Greenwich Park for a lovely, traffic free cycle. If you’re feeling particularly energetic, why not tackle the hill to up the Prime Meridian Line and Greenwich Observatory or go deer spotting in the park.
For the day to day commute, why not jump off the MBNA Thames Clippers service at Blackfriars or one of the many piers along the river for easy cycle access to the city.
If you’ve got tourist attractions on your agenda for the New Year, take the boat to Westminster Pier to see Big Ben before cycling along The Mall down to Buckingham Palace then heading to Green Park, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.
