london's buzzing shoreditch area has a lot to offer. perhaps a little too much? but if you explore the neighbourhood from the comfy back of a sleek, lightweight bike it's much easier to take it all in. it makes perfect sense that ace hotel has teamed with cult bike brand tokyobike to take you on a guided tour around the neighbourhood, highlighting the many fascinating twists and turns through these storied streets. starting sat - apr 19 these tours will be largely led by writer and brand consultant duncan riches, who'll also serve as curator for future ride guides - a good mix of local journalists, bloggers, designers and personalities that provide an authentic insider's view of london's streets. tours meet in the lobby for a cup of coffee from bulldog edition at 10am sharp, and then head straight over to tokyobike to pick up the bikes and helmets.
following a solid three-hours of sightseeing, you'll be taken back to the lobby for freshly made juice from lovage, ace hotel's onsite juice bar. besides these monthly scheduled tours, ace hotel and tokyobike also offer special bed and bike tours for hotel guests. these are tours that can be pre-arranged with the front desk staff on a case-by-case basis. simply use rate code bedandbike when you book your room at ace hotel to receive gbp 20 per person to spend at hoi polloi restaurant, lovage, bulldog edition or the lobby bar, in addition to access to a custom-made ace hotel x tokyobike for each day of your stay, and a cycling map of london. the offer is based on availability and applies only to reservations for deluxe rooms, with a maximum of two guests per room [on through end of june]. location: ace hotel, 100 shoreditch high street [shoreditch].
