“What’s your favourite cy­cling cafe, and what do you or­der there?”

Cycling Weekly - - We Asked You... -

Bike Beans in Ashtead, Sur­rey. Mug of tea and a ba­con tor­pedo roll with ketchup. So good we de­cided to have them and their Oreo brown­ies for our wed­ding re­cep­tion!

Han­nah Evans

Aldeli in Alder­ley Edge. Ev­ery­thing on the menu is de­li­cious but my per­sonal fave is freshly baked scones with cream and jam. They ac­tively sup­port cy­cling, from putting in bike stands to putting on cy­cling films, to spon­sor­ing our amaz­ing Cheshire Mav­er­ick Cy­cling Club.

Jo So­liva

Cafe Velo in Bev­er­ley. Run by an ex-pro, there is a reg­u­lar diet of cy­cling films shown on a large projector as well as cy­cling-re­lated film nights and sup­per clubs. There are wall racks to hang your car­bon beauty or town hack and years of cy­cling para­pher­na­lia to ad­mire.

Philip Sav­age

The Old Post Of­fice, Chapel of Gar­i­och, Aberdeen­shire. Friendly ser­vice, great cof­fee and su­perb cake. Plus it is up­hill which­ever way you ap­proach it, so the cof­fee and cake is al­ways well-de­served.

Ai­dan Mul­hall

The Blue Egg just out­side of Great Bard­field, Es­sex, is a great cy­cling stop and a firm favourite for a num­ber of pro riders. Alex Dowsett is a reg­u­lar, so it’s great to look at his bikes. Good food, too.

Jac­qui Stone

Look Mum No Hands! on Old Street, Lon­don. For break­fast, the grilled mack­erel; dur­ing the day a cof­fee, one of their house blends, with their ba­nana cake; in the evening one of their craft beers and a hal­loumi wrap.

Gemma Mercurio

Broomwagon Velo Cafe in Ret­ford and it’s got to be one of their ba­con sand­wiches with brown sauce and a fil­ter cof­fee, the per­fect mid-ride snack.

Jen­nifer Boyle

Harbour Lights tea­room over­look­ing Lossiemouth ma­rina in Mo­ray. Friendly welcome and great ser­vice. I usually have a toasted tea­cake with cof­fee.

Bill Mur­ray

Capheaton cafe in Northum­ber­land. Cheese savoury and a slice of hum­ming­bird cake. I still don’t know what is in the cake but it gets my back­side over the Ryals ev­ery time!

Mark Pater­son Eureka Cy­clists Cafe at Two Mills, near Chester. Nor­mal or­der is ei­ther a vanilla latte or a cap­puc­cino and one of their bril­liant home­made cakes.

Bran­don Ridg­way

Col­lapsed on a garage fore­court some­where with an emer­gency Mars Bar and an en­ergy drink.

Gra­ham Wy­att

Me­cy­cle cafe, Ains­dale, Southport. It sup­ports autism char­i­ties and serves the best cof­fee I’ve had. Great ser­vice and bikes and kit on sale too.

Pete Ken­rick

The cof­fee and cake stop is a cy­cling in­sti­tu­tion
