London is where the rg:active adventure began and although our head offices is now in the East Midlands, many of our sessions, coaches, customers and contracts are still in London along with a team that has more experience in the coaching sector than anyone. 

We operate across London and offer open water swimming, running, cycling and our bespoke corporate coaching packages that have been the focus of our London based team now for a few years. 

We one day hope to offer a cafe and showroom space like we have at our Sutton-in-Ashfield head office location but for now we work with and from some of the most iconic venues in London including Hyde Park, Richmond Park, Hampstead Heath to name but a few.

London's relationship with Sport

In London, a diverse array of athletics stretching from football to tennis have further granted its city the spotlight throughout the world. London has hosted the Olympic Games in 1908, 1948, and most recently in 2012, making it the most frequently chosen city in modern Olympic history. Other popular sports in London include cricket, rowing, rugby, basketball, and most recently American Football.

London has hosted the Summer Olympics in 1908 at White City and 1948 at Wembley Stadium. In July 2005 London was chosen to host the Games in 2012, making it the first city in the world to host the Summer Olympics three times.

London hosted the Paralympic Games in 2012, for the first time.

The 2012 games saw massive development in the East End of London, particularly Stratford, which is home to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Olympic Stadium and many major venues. Other events were spread out across the city, from Wembley Stadium in the north-west to Wimbledon in the south.

In recent years have seen cycling in London become increasingly popular. Transport for London have taken measures to improve cycling safety, and launched new initiatives including the Barclays Cycle Hire, Cycle Superhighways, and free cycle training. The Lee Valley VeloPark was constructed for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and re-opened to the public in March 2014. London was a part of the 2007 and 2014 Tour de France.
