Recommend me some safe central London cycle routes to ride for fun.

Is it possible to do boris-biking for fun and exercise? I'm visiting the capital next week, and looking for recommendations of very quiet or ideally traffic-free routes in London - central enough to be able to do in a series of <30m boris-bike hires. Hyde Park and Regents Park are obvious options - are there any others?

Recommend me some exercise DVDs, or other cheapskate ways to get fitter!

I'd like to get more exercise, and I think an exercise DVD or two might be the answer. Can you recommend any? Other cheapskate exercise solutions also welcome, but the answer "go for a run" is unfortunately no longer a good answer for me. [more inside]

Getting exercise and meeting people - help me to do two things at once!

Help me to think "out of the box" about exercise, and meeting new people. I need to do both (having just moved to a new country) and am interested in ideas that let me get some exercise, and that might let me meet new people. I am in France (in the Alps) so am going to need indoor and outdoor activities, because come wintertime, I'm not sure that cycling or hiking are going to be options. [more inside]

Help me work out my gym routine .

I am getting to the end of my weightloss programme (62lb gone, 9 to go before healthy BMI), go to the gym 3+ times a week, and am wondering if I should consider optimising the gym part for something other than calorie burn. Exercise geeks, please read the more inside and give me some advice... [more inside]

I want an exercise bike which can charge my phone. Does such a thing exist? If not, could I make one?

Is it possible to buy an exercise/stationary bike which generates electricity? If not, how hard would it be to build one or modify an existing exercise bike?
