  • My proposal for the ride starts at Leather Lane for coffee, chocolate and doughnuts. Then we'll ride across the river to Southwark Market to Monmouth, then to soho for Flat White, then Brompton Road to Troubadour.

    Monmouth Coffee shop - Monmouth Street!! I'm sorry, but I really don't see how you can justify going to Borough Market when the real, original shop is open Monday-Saturday, 8am–6.30pm at 27 Monmouth Street, London WC2H 9EU.

    Additionally, it puts you in a similar part of town to....

    Now, Turkish? You fancy Algerian on Old Compton?

    ps, i am nothing to do with monmouth coffee shop, just remember going there over 25 years ago with my folks so they could get their coffee beans...

  • I could be well on for this, a little obsessed with coffee to say the least and its a good reason to get outta bed on a Saturday!

    'T-shirt prizes for the most pretentious bike/inappropriately dressed for the temperature'

    guess I better dust off the floss thong then....

    Thong......?
    I was just gonna go with one solitary hiking sock to protect the important stuff ;)

  • Did we lose much from this thread?
    Can we haz a coffee stop at somewhere that sells square mile coffee beans?

  • I really want to come on this ride. But....

    Where is the meeting point?

    When is the meeting time?

    What is the route? Start /finish?

  • Come on Ved that's not the way to do things, you stick your name on the list and then find everything out at the last minute.

  • i need to plan my shit mick.

  • great idea. count me in.
    where and when do you want to start?

  • Where is the meeting point?

    Fullcity, 72 Leather Lane, E1.

    When is the meeting time?

    Saturday Nov 7, 11am.

    What is the route? Start /finish?

    Fullcity (Leather Lane), Monmouth Coffee (Monmouth St), Flat White (Berwick St), Troubadour (Brompton Road, near Earl's Court).

    That's the current state of play at least.

  • Excellent could I suggest this information is edited into the first page of the thread.

    Alas I am now unable to make the ride. No flight clearance.

  • i'm stoked for this.

    is there any cost involved? (to cover the previously mentioned spoke cards, prizes, etc? obviously aside from all the coffees)

    i'm gonna be so jacked up on caffeine on the jaunt back to stoke newington from earl's court!

  • Hey everyone, I hope the weather will be good on Saturday. There will be no charge at the start, however I have failed to entice the owners of the other coffee shops to follow suit.

  • Funny... I only drink coffee before (espresso or 3) and after (large flat white or 2) cycling.... I have 20+ different types of tea at home ... but no coffee. I REALLY wish I could come on the Espresso ride... but I will ride to a few coffee shops on the day and join you all in spirit :)
