Ride Report: East London brewery ride 17 June 17

‘Very hot’ is an understatement of Saturday’s brewery  ride!

But great fun –we visited 18 breweries & indicated where another 4 were and made 4 stops for welcome refreshments (5 for those who made it to end!)

Route was off road when possible or on quiet roads and canal towpaths -except for a busy bit in Hackney (where I added some unintentional diversions!) -we even took in a couple of busy markets -Broadway & Ridley road!

after the blazing sun and lack of shade at the Bevertown brewery we all welcomed the chilled breweries in Walthamstow (Pillars & Wild card) as well as the amazing ‘gods own junkyard’ -always worth a visit!

A few hardy souls made it to the last stop at Tap east -we had to share with guns n’ roses fans there for a gig at London stadium!

enjoying a well earned stop at Redchurch Brewery!
