THE BIKE SHED almost defies definition.
It’s a loose organisation of like-minded riders committed to all types of modified machines.
It’s a London-based club, with a permanent club/bar/restaurant/music venue in Shoreditch, celebrating all that’s good about two-wheel culture. And it’s rapidly becoming a ‘brand’.
Bike Shed is also a London show, now in its third year at the iconic Tobacco Dock in Wapping.
This year’s event saw some 150 top-flight motorcycles on display alongside clothing, helmets, good food, two live bands, and even a five-chair barbershop.
The ‘Losers Tea Stall’ was staffed by Dave and John from the London-based Losers MCC serving tea and a biscuit at a quid a go – a long way from typical London prices – to raise funds for prostate cancer research.
Good tea it was, too.
