Brewery Ride

Bill leads another of our (in)famous brewery rides!

As usual, adults only – limited numbers and riders join at their own risk!

Entry by booking only.

Approx 22 miles easy riding some off road with a few busy roads around Tower Hamlets / Hackney but mainly quiet. New east London breweries added this time -over twenty covered with some refreshment stops.

For those who would prefer to start in Forest Gate (and don’t mind missing the first  2 points on the tour, Mason & Co and Tap East), the first ‘refreshment stop’ is at Pretty Decent so you could meet Bill there at around 12.30.  Please let Bill know ahead of time if you’re choosing this option, so that he doesn’t wait for you at the View Tube!

This Saturday you can watch royal wedding or ride around breweries!

enjoying a well earned stop!

Ride to the Pig’s Ear Beer Festival


Bill has managed to secure a few free tickets to the Pig’s Ear Beer Festival (usually £5) and Steve will be leading a ride there and back.

We can take a maximum of 12 people on this ride, so please email us to reserve your space.

Obviously this is a ‘ride at your own risk’ event and we ask everyone to be sensible!

Departing from the View Tube at 12.00 and returning from the Round Chapel at 3pm.

Timing – riding 3hrs + 3 x 20min stops = 4 hrs, returning to start at 4pm (or at least that’s the plan!)
