Look mum no hands!

The Cafe Run

Hardcore #Lmnh fans may remember our first Cafe Run back in 2014. Our cycling cafe ride returns from 10th August 2019, cycle from Look mum no hands! to G!RO cafe (or the other way around) and we'll award you with a limited edition cycling cap. *Please note all the caps have now GONE! The Cafe Run is finito. Big thanks to everyone that took part.*

We've teamed up with our G!RO Cafe pals, a cycling cafe and bar located on 2 High Street in Esher, Surrey. We both share a passion for coffee, cycling, beer and exclamation marks! 

 Ride your bike with some friends, visit two lovely cafes and sample some cake!

There's no time limit, no deadline, no specific route to take and no goal other than enjoying the ride. Begin at either location, soak up some sights and treat yourself to coffee / cafe / beer when you finish. We did the ride with some friends, take a look at the adventure here.

The Cap

Rune Creative aka Pip Claffey, a Manchester based illustrator has expertly captured some of the iconic views you'll see along the route and put them onto the cycling cap! View more pics of the cap here.

Marvel at Big Ben (that's currently under construction), take a peek at Battersea Power Station (surrounded by cranes), roll over Putney Bridge and see how many deer you can spot in Richmond Park. You can't miss a wicked photo opportunity at Hampton Court either. 

To Participate 

Grab a Cafe Run loyalty card and get it stamped when you buy a brew at each location, redeem your completed card for the limited edition Cafe Run Cap. Please note, the caps are limited edition, once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Diversity In Cycling

Diversity In Cycling was conceived as a collaborative grass roots project to better understand the lack of black and Asian diversity in cycling and particularly in cycling clubs. The project grew through word of mouth, eventually attracting the attention of governing body British Cycling who helped distribute the report to its members and more broadly. We provided the launch event to a pack audience of cyclists of all backgrounds back in June 2019. Please Read, Share and Act on the Diversity in Cycling report.
