A view for a beer

Posted by Alan on April 11, 2011

Last weekend I took the bike down the Kernel brewery in Bermondsey, primarily because I wanted to stock up on beer! It’s a good 10 miles or so. On the way back I used it as an excuse to check out cycle Superhighway 3 out towards the Docklands, before heading up toward the Olympic Park at Stratford.

Having been on the go pretty much all morning without break I popped into the Container Café / View Tube by the Olympics Park.

It’s a pretty neat location – you can see the building work going on all around you and enjoy a bacon sandwich. It’s a bit hippy-ish,  despite being in the middle of one of the most commercial projects in London!

I guess it won’t be there much longer – I can’t imagine it would be allowed to stay during the games itself, so if you’ve got a spare sunny Saturday nip down the Greenway and have a look at progress.
