Maison du Velo coffee and bike shop Reigate

Maison du Velo is a recent discovery of Andy “Womble”. He has made repeat visits not only due to the cake but, no doubt, to the “bike porn” on display! Situated in Reigate, Surrey it is a fairly flat ride that can include some hills to taste! Google map link

Velolife

Velolife is a cafe for cyclists! For many years I’ve cycled along a quiet Warren Row Road on my way back from Henley then in 2012 this cafe sprung up. The menu is limited but great if you just want coffee and cake! It can get very busy mid morning. Recently Clashcity and I popped […]

Strawberry Fields Tea Room near Horsham

Horsham is a long way on a bike. Cake is required! Strawberry Fields Tea Room is near to the Faygate roundabout on the A264. A little off the beaten track but worth it. Nice coffee and cakes. A typical farm and craft shop with ample space for bikes and cars. I had a chance to […]

Whilst out on my solo ride today I had the misfortune to require the help of ‘Head for the Hills’ cycle shop in Dorking (part broken chain link). Whilst waiting I asked if they could tell me where the nearest Coffee Shop was. The said the The Dorking Deli was just a few doors down […]

Dabbling Duck – Shere

This is a most marvellous cafe in the heart of the little village of Shere at the base of a brilliant downhill (careful in the wet) or one heck of a climb! The cakes are to die for. However, Dr David did mention that the Hot Chocolate could do with being a bit hotter. So […]
