Does anyone know if the rapid at Ikea Tottenham is accessible 24 x 7?
Driving down for the 100k bike ride tomorrow night and need somewhere to charge now that London Gateway and Ikea Wembley are down. Well impressed that you can fit a road bike in the back with both wheels left on.

Not been to that one, but pretty certain that it would only be available when the store is open. I looked on Google street view, and it shows locked gates to the car park!

Their Saturday opening hours are quite good 9.00 to 22.00, but Sunday is 11.00 to 17.00.

If you are coming down the M1, it's not a great detour across to South Mimms on the M25, and you could continue on down the A1 from there.

Ended up using Toddington and then Ikea Tottenham.

It was a great bike ride about central London. Only low point were the cocks in lamborghinis deliberately causing traffic congestion in Picadilly.

It'd be handy if the IKEA chargers were all available 24x7 - I find it difficult to think of a valid reason for IKEA needing to lock their car parks out of hours (if they're worried about people ram-raiding the store, surely they could install heavy bollards near the doors?).
