Don your best lycras, stretch those calves and carbo-load like a boss - the British Heart Foundation’s London to Brighton Bike Ride is upon us! The iconic race will see riders burning rubber on Sunday 16th June, starting in Clapham and ending near the beaut beaches of Brighton.
Whether you’re pedalling with pride or supporting on the sidelines, it’s a long old race so you’re going to need to get those calories in to keep your energy up! We’re so excited to be supplying the hungry crowds for a second time with delicious street food and cracking coffee at this year’s event. After all, what could be better than a bacon buttie whilst supporting an incredible cause? Take a look at our best eats on the BHF start-line:
Early mornings can be tough enough without a 54 mile bike ride. You’re going to need some beans to propel you to the finish line in Brighton! Routes Coffee have driven across the world in their beautiful 1989 Bedford Rascal and picked up all the tricks of the trade from coffee bean farmers, distributors, roasters and baristas along the way. In short: you're in safe hands with these coffee aficionados!
Greenbox Food Co
Vegan heaven in a takeaway box. Greenbox are creators of mouth watering plant-based fast food born from the quest of two sustainably conscious best friends. Ross & Tom started with a family recipe from Tom’s Granny’s cookbook. With a little bit of tweaking, they turned her famous nut roast into their signature patty ‘The Original.’ Don’t be surprised though to see some weird and wonderfully wacky creations on their menu from Popcorn Tofu to Watermelon Bacon.
You can’t have a Sunday without a bacon buttie. It’s sacrilege. Enter: Oink London. Their mission is simple: bacon sandwiches aren’t just for breakfast. Enclosed in freshly baked soft sourdough sweet buns, their second-to-none bacon is then lovingly coated in their homemade relishes. And it doesn’t stop there: want added halloumi? No worries! Fried egg and extra bacon? Hakuna matata my friend! Your bound to cycle a little faster after one (or three) of these beauties.
Mac to the Future
These guys have a wide range of mac ‘n’ cheese dishes that will get everyone talking and help you to carbo-load like a boss. Let Mac to the Future take you on a journey that will make all of your cheesiest dreams come true. The mac 'n’ cheese is prepared fresh to order using only the finest and freshest local ingredients from London. Controversial opinion but love it or hate it, we highly recommend The Hill Valley Special with Marmite… Unbelievably good.
The Duck Shed
Michelin-starred quality food at a street food stall? You better believe it! Both founders of The Duck Shed have over 20 years of high-end Michelin star kitchen experience; Claire was former Head Chef of Ottolenghi and Steve was sous chef at The Square and La Trompette - and their food certainly doesn’t disappoint. The team slow roast free-range English ducks for 6 hours, the meat is then pulled and mixed with all the cooking liquor so it’s super moist and delicious before being lovingly piled into the softest of brioche buns. Tell us you’re not dribbling!
