Promotional feature

Bike Beans Cycle Café

Just 20 minutes from the top of Box Hill, Bike Beans Cycle Café is famous for ‘fuelling the revolution’ over the last five years. A friendly, vibrant, hidden gem – a must for any club/group ride stop. Fantastic homemade food, cakes and coffee. New members welcome.

Spoke & Co


Spoke & Co are passionate about good food, the local community and cycling! We provide great quality, locally sourced food and drink. Based south of Nottingham in a converted church we also have a fully stocked bike shop, workshop and Wattbike studio run by cyclists with years of experience to share.

Ronde Bike Café

Cycling and coffee have long had a close relationship. Nestled in a wee corner of Stockbridge in Edinburgh, Ronde is where speciality coffee and cycling collide. The former butchers’ shop retains many of its original features, although now the only carcasses hanging on the walls are those of custom-built road bikes. Vintage-ska, the hiss of espresso steam wand and the whirr of wheels provide the soundtrack at this unique venue which specialises in bikes built to order.

Roll for the Soul

Roll for the Soul is a non-profit bike shop and vegetarian/vegan café bar, right in the centre of Bristol. The full-service workshop specialises in custom touring cycles and wheelbuilding, as well as servicing and repairs for all types of cycles.

Maison du Velo

An open and friendly cycle café and bike shops in the heart of Surrey, Maison Du Vélo serve top notch coffee, cakes and hot food to cyclists from far and wide. As well as leading rides for everyone from beginners to racers they fit, service, source and sell all brands of bike.

Stan’s Bike Shack

Nestled next to the South Downs National Park, Stan’s Bike Shack is an unusual stop-off and meeting place that offers tasty treats and a selection of cyclist services including free-to-use tools, work stand, track pump, locks, tap to refill water bottles and bike accessories.
