Cycle Speed Dating on your bike! Join us for a leisurely ride with dates and a pint afterwards at the Look Mum No Hands! pop-up near London Bridge.
Cycle Speed Dating is for everyone who likes riding a bicycle. We give you the opportunity to meet like-minded people in a relaxed environment.
This time we take Cycle Speed Dating outside so we can enjoy some fresh air, good views and hopefully sunshine while we get to know each other.
Bring your own bicycle or rent one*, meet at the Look Mum No Hands! pop-up and go for a leisurely ride for about 1,5 hours. During this time you’ll get the chance to cycle with different people and we’ll end the ride at the pop-up for a well-deserved pint.
Your ticket includes a drink (after the ride) and a light snack (during the ride) plus a match mail in your inbox the day after the event.
A limited number of early bird tickets is available until noon, August 7th (limited number of tickets available).
Please note that even though we do everything to make sure we ride as safely as possible as a group, you are responsible for your own safety at all times. Cycle Speed Dating cannot be held responsible for any damage related to you or your belongings during this event.

It's my first time, what's a speed date like? A speed date is a short date. This way you can meet several people with similar interests in a short amount of time. The dates last three to four minutes, which is often enought to find out if you would like to see someone again. Everyone attending the event will receive a piece of paper on which notes can be made about the people you meet and to let us know who you would like to meet again. After the event we will email you to let you know if there was a match. A match is when you both want to see each other again.
Cycle Speed Dating has brought couples together and also friendships have been formed since we started in 2013. It's also a good way to 'practise' dating and to get to know new people.
