Discover the city's best-kept secrets

London's a great city to explore on foot, but for those who wish to cover more ground without getting caught in the snarling gridlock of traffic, two wheels are the way to go. For guests staying at The London EDITION, they'll find complimentary bicycles to take out for a spin. We're not talking rusty old wheels that trundle under their own weight, but stylish, minimalist rides from independent bicycle company tokyobike. These custom-made bikes, modelled after tokyobike's bestselling Sports model, boasts a matte-black frame with components accented in brush brass. In addition to suave leather saddles and grips, the bike comes with its own leather-wrapped lock and luxury helmet.
