Meeting Points

It's been fun choosing cafes to start rides from, some are famous in the lycra world, others are just eccentric wonderlands of gastronomic brilliance - all are friendly and fun, turn up 10 minutes early and grab a coffee while you wait...

Four Boroughs Cafe

10 Church Rd, Upper Norwood, SE19 2ET

Four Boroughs is a place to switch off from the material world - its minimal aesthetic and open vibe enables the focus to be on the good things on offer.

Coffee beans are small batch roasted by Assembly in Brixton who knock out sweet, delicious beans time after time.

Listed as 'one of coolest' cafe's in London by Red Bull - its a great place to start a ride.
