A new sub culture has silently wheeled onto the London scene that looks set to take us all for a ride. Eco-friendly cyclists have reclaimed our car-heavy city for their own—they’ve even got their own coffee shops.
Look Mum No Hands! is one such bike-loving institution, a hybrid mix of coffee shop, bike workshop, café, bar and cinema. Cyclists are welcome to jump off the saddle, rest, refuel, have their bike mended whilst they watch live Grand Tour screenings.
A haven for lycra enthusiasts, this cool and comfy garage-cum-café also boasts an array of features that any amateur cyclist or even hardened pedestrian would enjoy too—a well stocked bar of Belgian beers, wines and juices, outside tables, a light and airy interior and tasty home-cooked food (try the cassoulet). Also in the pipeline are film evenings, exhibitions, an accident legal advice service, free safety checks, competitions and book launches.
