Where is it? Trafalgar Square, Strand, and ultimately to Arnold Circus.
What's quirky about it? It's Strand Ley, one of the many lines of mystical forces across London and Britain identified by Alfred Watkins. He noticed that whenever there were two points of great, ancient spiritual significance - Glastonbury Tor, say, or Lord's - they were always connected by a straight line. Which can't be a coincidence.
Why bike there? Can't you feel the force?
