Velolife café only received two complaints in two years despite threat of ban

The complaints related to 'unacceptable nose and throat clearing'

Only two complaints have been received in the past two years concerning Velolife cycling café despite authorities trying to ban cyclists from meeting at the venue because they "cause a nuisance to nearby residents."

This revelation, which has come to light thanks to a Freedom of Information request submitted to Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (RBWM) council, details just two complaints made since August 2017, which relate to "unacceptable nose and throat clearing" as well as noise made by cyclists gathering outside the premises.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
