I dont do that whole route but I know some of it

I'd try marylebone road
A501/Sussex gardens
Porchester place (bike route)
Cross Bayswater Road at bike crossing into Hyde PArk
Bike path through Park to Hyde Park Corner (to be honest Park Lane is fine if you prefer but you mght find some pert runners to admire in the Park)
Constitution Hill
Buckingham Gate
Artillery Road
Horse Ferry Road
Lambeth Bridge
20-25 mins?
I'm more reliable on the first 3/4

I recall battering between the two proximities in about 10 mins. Didn't have a planned route, just pointed bike in the general direction and pedalled furiously.

kelsen,

that would be brisk! I doPaddington to Mayfair in 10 minutes overtaking almost everyone as I go... And it's half the distance

Ok, maybe it was more like 12-13 mins then :wink:

I needed to get to a camera shop before it closed

Used to be my commute. No end of routes to choose from - head downhill and keep going. If you don't bring a bike, No.2 bus starts just outside the station and will do the trick.
