A great concept for anyone who loves cycling. Full-time mechanics working upstairs that can help with flat tyres and answer any questions about bikes, as well as a great outdoor area to sit and bask in the sun with a coffee and food.

Where do I begin. Living in the heart of London where residents care for our neighbours, where its not a problem for people to pick up litter, being kind to one an another. Maybe its shopping locally as its very close to the streets of West End and many shopping areas. Local to some of London's main attractions, where there's a road which could lead you straight to north, east, west or south London in a short matter of time. Just a fantastic atmosphere which is why its very popular to tourist, EC1 happens to be well known for many reasons especially for its good community. That is why I believe my area is a fantastic area where any person could fall in love with.
