Cycle Speed Dating is back at Look Mum No Hands! Mare Street this autumn. We believe solo cycling is magic, but cycling together is even better!
Do you like riding a bike, are you single and up for meeting new people? Join us for this no fuss, relaxed dating event and meet like-minded singles during three minute dates.
LMNH provides the perfect location for the event in the heart of Hackney which has a rich cycling culture. The atmosphere is relaxed for this no stress dating event, there will be enough space to lock bikes up and the ticket includes a free drink (including delicious Vedett and Rothaus beers).
We will kick off at 8pm, please come and register before 7.45pm.
Tickets (£15 / £12 - before November 18th) are on sale now and include a drink, the professional hosting of the evening and an email afterwards with your matches.
Who are you?
We love cycling and everything that comes with it. We want to contribute to making Londoners happy cyclists by organising events.
Where does the Cycle Speed Dating event take place?
We are proud to organise this Cycle Speed Dating event at Look Mum No Hands. Please note it will take place at their Mare Street location (125-127 Mare St, London E8 3RH) not the Old Street location.
Do I need to be single?
We kindly ask you to only sign up for this event when you’re single.
Do I need to purchase my ticket in advance?
Yes, please do buy your ticket in advance, we want to get the balance right between the number of men and women so please book your ticket as soon as possible.
Do I need to own a bike?
We think being a cyclist is more than owning a bike. We welcome everyone who feels like a cyclist. It’s in the heart.
Can I bring a friend?
It’s great to go on a speed dating session with a group of friends. You will surely make some memories! Everyone attending the event needs to hold a ticket. If you bring people for support, they can hang out in the café without a ticket during the event but can't participate.
I bought a ticket, now what?
Please wait for an email confirmation. After that we look forward to welcoming you from 7.30pm on the day of the event for a 8pm start.
I can’t make it after all, can I get a refund?
Under some circumstances we can refund your ticket, but in general we can’t, sorry! Feel free to pass you ticket on to someone who can make it (just make sure to update the information we hold). If you can’t make it we kindly ask you to let us know.
Can I attend on my own?
Yes, this is the place to meet like-minded people and maybe even a very special person. If you’re coming on your own then please don’t be scared as there will be awesome souls around this evening. We’re in it together.
Can I bring my bike?
Absolutely! Lots of space to lock it up and show it off in front of the venue!
Why do you call it Cycle Speed Dating when there's no cycling involved?
We thought it just sounded nice and haven't found a way to organise actual dating on bikes just yet ;)
It’s my first time, what’s a speed date like?
A speed date is a short date. It allows you to meet around 10-20 new people with similar interests in one evening. The dates last three minutes, which is often enought to find out if you would like to see someone again.
We will split in two groups, on group will stay seated while the other group will change seats every three minutes when we ring the bicycle bell. The evening is split in two sessions, you will ‘date’ about 8-10 people per session. During the break you can relax for a little bit and grab a drink before the second session starts.
Everyone attending the event will receive a ‘ticksheet’ 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.
What happens if I like someone during the event?
Everyone attending the event will receive a ‘ticksheet’ on which you can make notes about the people you meet and let us know if you would like to meet someone 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.And of course, if you want, you can tell someone you like him/her during the event!
Does age matter?
Age is just a number, but based on experiences and feedback, we have decided to organise events for different age groups. This is not set in stone though. Email us at email@example.com if you're unsure.
My age is not in the age range of the event, can I sign up anyway?
We have based the age range on research and experiences, but you will know best if this is the event for you. We have to set a limit somewhere and have the right to cancel your booking if we think the event is not for you.
What do I wear?
Come as you are.
What does my ticket include?
Your ticket includes one free drink, the professional hosting at Look Mum No Hands during the event and an email afterwards with your matches.
I find it hard to start a conversation with a stranger, help?
We have chosen a wonderful location for the event which will make you feel at ease. Next to that we will provide little inspiration cards and items on the tables during the event to get the conversation started. Don’t forget you probably have three things in common to start with: you’re a cyclist, a Londoner and you’re single!
What do I do when I don’t like someone three minutes can take forever?
It might happen that you’re dating someone you wouldn’t pick on first sight. We will provide little inspiration cards and items on the tables during the event to help you get to know the person next to you. You might be surprised!
How do I contact you?
