Bikeminded Cake and Coffee Cruise

The Sweet Life in Kensington and Chelsea


Following exercise, we like to reward ourselves with cake and coffee.

You might call it a vicious cycle. We call it the Bikeminded Cake and Coffee Cruise.

This Saturday the two-and-a-half-hour bicycle tour takes in some of Kensington and Chelsea’s best independent cake shops. Riders start with coffee at Pedlars in Notting Hill and end up at Cocomaya in Chelsea, sampling dessert around Kensington and Knightsbridge along the way. Take your own ride or rent a Boris bike; marshals from the Royal Borough will be around to keep the group (roughly 40) in line and an eye on the cycles while you eat.

Next on the agenda: a ghost cycle tour in time for Halloween.

We call that spokey.

Bikeminded Cake and Coffee Cruise, Saturday, 1:30-4 p.m. For more information and to book tickets (£5), go to bikeminded.org.
