Bike Shed Event 2013 Poster FINAL Med

LONDON CALLING: SAT 18th & SUN 19th MAY. …Firstly, we’ve moved to a bigger venue, the Shoreditch Studios – just around the corner from the Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane & Spitalfields. More Space, More Bikes, More Gear, More cool Bike shit, and more room you all of us to hang out and have a good time.

Swanky New Venue


Join us in a celebration of all things related to the retro-classic scene that combines cafe racers, brat style, scramblers and customs under one virtual roof, with inspiring photography, rule-breaking art and design, plus you can even walk away with a new haircut or a tasteful tattoo, should the urge take you. There will also be outside space to hang out, plus good food and good coffee.


The event is free to attend, but if you enjoy it, and can afford it, there will be the opportunity to make a no-pressure, no guilt, voluntary donation. The event is open to the public on Sat 18th & Sun 19th May, from 11am till 7pm.

Bikes like these – and more, plus five new un-seen custom bikes will debut at the show.
