A new comedy about life, love and staying on your bike!

When retired miner Don and former private school teacher Carol meet at a bereavement group, they thought they’d found a new beginning. But a bike ride through Europe would test their budding romance, and the road to love is rocky when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

Join them on their hilarious and heartfelt journey, as they reconcile the past, debate the present and worry about the future. Whether they’re saddle sore in Southampton, blistered in Bordeaux or frazzled in Florence, one thing is for sure – it takes two to tandem!

Starring the double BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning partnership of John Godber and Jane Thornton, whose feature film Last Laugh is released October 2017.


“The Scary Bikers may deal with heavyweight political topics but Godber’s lightness of touch and his sharp northern wit make for an enjoyable evening - the guffaws of laughter from the audience testament that his writing is as sharp as ever.”
Wakefield Express

“played with humanity and unforced naturalness”
The Reviews Hub

★★★★★
“rather than becoming a political satire, this play holds up a mirror to the society in which we now live in, as we stumble blindly into our new post Brexit future... A raucous ride with moments of side-splitting hilarity”
North West End
