Brunch @The Bike Shed - Shoreditch, London EC1V 9LT

  • 4 days ago · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

[masked] UPDATE - In light of the fact that it was -3 deg at 8am this morning, I have changed the plans to start later in the interest of safety. Hopefully there will be no sign of ice by 10.30am so we can ride safely and do brunch instead. The table is now booked for 12.30pm but we plan to get there a little earlier 😎. Apologies for any inconvenience.


Fancy brunch at possibly the best bikers cafe in UK? If Carlsberg did bikers cafe's this is what it would look like! see www.thebikeshed.cc

It is a very busy place so I have reserved a table for 16 at 12.30pm to avoid disappointment. BTW it's also a bikers shop, custom bike showroom and coffee lounge.

We will take the quickest and simplest route to the venue which is straight down the A10 into central London. The venue is literally on the intersection of Old Street with A10. We will catch the A10 via A414 after Harlow.

After breakfast we can hang around and chillout, or if you prefer we can go for a ride down to the Thames, along the Embankment to Big Ben and back out...we can decide on the day.

This will be a standard pace ride but will include dual carriageway sections. You must also be comfortable riding in traffic and be able to filter safely. Everyone welcome subject to above but you must be able to safely keep up with posted speed limits up to 60mph.

We will be using the BUDDY system. Our normal Cornerman/Drop Off system can be difficult or unsafe in London traffic so we will break into groups of 3/4 and use the Buddy system. If you are not familiar with the Buddy system, its pretty much what you do when you go for a ride with a couple of mates. It will be explained at the briefing anyway, so dont worry. You can google it for more info.

All types of motorcycles are welcome (not incl Scooters).

This event will be cancelled in case of adverse weather conditions.

    Guys, I would love, but my son is to be born on the 4th Dec, according to the midwife, supposedly... so for obvious reasons, and to avoid a divorce, I will not be able to make this one. 🙂
    I'll see you soon, hopefully with another member to be of the club!
