Taking time out from their busy schedule, One Direction's Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne peddle around the streets of London. The boy band duo were spotted renting a couple of bikes from a Boris bike station in Hoxton, taking the time to first read the directions and pick out a route.

Louis and Liam opted for the picturesque route, traveling alongside the nearby the canal. Surprisingly the boys managed to go unnoticed, riding along without a mob of crazed fans following them.

Louis kept it stylish, sporting a white button up shirt, paired with a black jacket and black jeans, while Liam went for comfort with a casual black and white T-shirt and black jeans.

Even though Louis and Liam had the day off, some of their other bandmates did not. Niall Horan was still working, as he was spotted entering a recording studio in London, carrying what appeared to be One Direction documents. And he tweeted that a surprise was coming, saying, "Guys as you know we've been in studio a lot lately.... Big announcement coming Thursday night! Can't wait to tell you all!"

What do you think it could be? What do you think of Louis and Liam's day off?
