It starts at Buckingham palace, taking you straight to Hyde Park and the iconic Broadwalk: this passage is incredible when covered in autumn leaves. From here you can challenge yourself to set some personal best laps around Regent’s Park.
You then head towards Richmond and it famous park. Now is your chance for fast laps if you fancy them, or enjoy a relaxing pace while taking in the nature. The park is stunning all year round, but nothing beats the late summer evenings or the golden autumn colours with deer antlers poking through the fern.
Next up is a "detour" through one of our favourite neighbourhoods: Richmond riverside.
Beautiful mansions, breathtaking river views and refreshments on the green - it has it all!
You can have a snack, coffee or ice cream here but we recommend the cinnamon slice from Ole & Steen to take away and enjoy by the river.
On a hot day we love to have a speedy lunch at &Feast in Barnes. They have the best veggie and non veggie food, and in the summer you can chill in their sun-beds on the common.
If it's a bit chilly and you’d prefer to sit inside, The Dynamo offers vegan pizzas and banana shakes ( 57 km).
You then head back to Buckingham along the river but if you still have energy, don’t hesitate to deviate the route to explore the back roads of Chelsea.
Enjoy the ride!
