    There are quite a few. Just hang around for a while and you'll "meet" them.

    Hi all, I'm in the wilds of Oxfordshire, and excited about getting back on the bike (tourer) after a long break.

    Yes, it seems that the congestion charging has increased our numbers. When I first came to the UK and started riding to work I seemed there was not as many people. Now I get stuck in bike jams at intersections and pathway bottle necks. But I'm not complaining. Rather more bikes than cars anyday.

    I'd love to see that. When I lived there, I used to commute to London occasionally (I lived in Horsham). I hated it, one of the most unnerving cities I've ever ridden in, on account of those narrow roads and all the "pedestrial barriers" at all the intersections that cram me up against busses and taxis. Ugh. I just can't imagine something as odd as cycle traffic jams in london! I haven't been in London since the congestion charge started. Hope it's better now than I remember it. Enjoy!

    As for the original question: Just hang around and you'll find Brits and ex-pats lurking around. Watch for odd language clues as well.

    Just cuz my location says Paris doesn't mean I'm a Frenchie Zut alors, un rosbif en France? Mais oui!

    Hello,
    I am for NW London, Edgware and riding in London is not really that bad. There are plenty of back street to avoid heavy traffic. Suppose since I haved taxied in London and know it like the back of my hand it helps.

    Hi, I'm from Lichfield in Staffordshire, originally from Hertfordshire, via many different places.

    I just couldn't be without my bike

    Generally quiet, lots of little lanes to use whilst the cars use the main roads

    If you want spectacular results, you have to know how to treat your bike badly.

    i'm from south london, now living in the north up near holloway road commuting to soho on my new singlespeed.
    all my mates and colleagues think i'm mad talking about bikes all the time so if any londoners are interested in a beer and a bike around let me know.

    I'm originally from the UK (cheshire), for the last 4 years have been living in Michigan USA, near Detroit. Great biking area for both road and trail. Pontiac Lake trail is best ever!
