Cycling is social. Riders have stories to swap, advice to share, fine points to debate, and what better setting than the time-honored locus of loitering and conversation: the café?
Among the best known of a newish crop of bicycle-themed cafes cum clubhouses is Look Mum No Hands! located along a busy cycling thoroughfare in Islington. It’s the spot that the London Cyclist recommended for our recent interview about the cycling scene there.
This Velojoy article made me nostalgic for the popup NYC Rapha Cycling Club from the summer of 2010 (?). Great gear. Great coffee. Great convos. Great events. I miss it…
Next time I’m in London, I’ll get out of Heathrow and head directly to Look Mum No Hands!
