Reviews of some of the cafes we visit on our rides will appear here.
It is useful when planning a ride to know where to stop for refreshments.
If you would like to share a good coffee and cake stop with others please let us know.
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 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 […]
