HELLO! shares some of our favourite photos of the royal family cycling from Prince William and Kate Middleton to the Queen and Prince Charles
WATCH: Kate Middleton tries mountain biking and abseiling in Cumbria
And who can forget the adorable official portrait that Prince William and Kate released for their son Prince Louis’ third birthday in 2021 that showed the youngster sitting on a red balance bike?
So quicker than you can say “on your bike,” here are some of our favourite photos of royals enjoying a cycle ride…
Royal watchers may be used to seeing the likes of Prince William and Prince Harry playing polo on horseback, but in 2002 when the future King was 20, he took part in a charity Jockeys v Eventers bicycle polo match at Tidworth Polo Club – and looked to be having a ball!
The Duchess of Cambridge
Before she became a Duchess, Kate would regularly cycle near her parents’ home in Bucklebury. She’s pictured wearing sportswear and sunglasses in 2008.
The Countess of Wessex
Prince Edward’s wife Sophie completed the 450-mile Diamond Challenge as she cycled from Edinburgh to London in 2016. A jubilant Sophie was greeted by her husband and their children Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn when she arrived at Buckingham Palace.
And Sophie isn’t the only royal to have taken on a challenge – Princess Eugenie took part in a 64-mile charity bike ride event in 2012.
Taken at around the time Meghan Markle was first thought to be dating Prince Harry, she and former Made in Chelsea star, Millie Mackintosh, hired vintage bikes to cycle around Soho Farmhouse.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s youngest child, Prince Louis , proved he was just like any other little boy, as the couple released a new photo of their beaming son sitting on a red balance bike, to mark his third birthday on 23 April 2021.
Mike Tindall and Mia Tindall
The Tindalls are no stranger to attending the horse trials in their local area, but we particularly loved this sighting of Mike Tindall cycling with his daughter Mia, then three years old, at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials in Stamford.
Prince Harry, Prince Charles and Prince William
Prince Charles appears to be putting in all the work as he cycles around with a then-six-year-old Prince Harry on the back of his bike. The pair, along with Prince William, enjoyed a ride around the Queen’s Sandringham estate in 1990.
Princess Diana and Prince William
Princess Diana looked so chic as she and Prince William cycled around the Scilly Isles during a family holiday in 1989.
Princess Margaret and the Queen
A young Margaret and Elizabeth cycle around their childhood home, Royal Lodge in Windsor, in 1942.
The Duchess of Cambridge
The Duchess of Cambridge was in her absolute element as she tried mountain biking in Cumbria with a group of Air Cadets in September 2021. Sporty Kate also showed no fear as she tried abseiling.
Environmentalist Prince Charles tried out an eco-bike at an event in 2011.
Zara Tindall was spotted cycling around the Badminton Horse Trials in 2016.
Prince Harry enjoyed a bike ride around the incredible Sportcampus Zuiderpark to launch the Invictus Games in The Hague, The Netherlands in 2019.
Just before Christmas in 1989, a 25-year-old Prince Edward was spotted cycling in the grounds of Sandringham.
