Lately London Cycle Cafes have been getting a lot of exposure. Whether that be the Evening Standard, Time Magazine, Timeout, Bike Hugger or the Financial Times. Therefore, I thought now may be a good time to actually take a better look at some of them.
Look Mum No Hands Cycle Cafe
Quickly becoming London’s most popular meeting point for cyclists this great cafe provides a workshop where you can work on your bike yourself or hand it over to a mechanic, delicious meals and a great place to relax with a coffee. Closes at 10pm.
MiCycle is a very recent addition to London and it provides far more than a bike shop. It is also a place to borrow tools to work on your bike, grab a coffee and take part in cycling classes.
With free coffee with each repair and lifetime servicing on any bike purchases, this is a great cafe destination for cyclists along Cycle Superhighway 8. Flag bikes also offer fitting and a nice range of cycling gear. The cafe definitely invites you to idle a little longer.
CycleLab Juice Bar
London Cycle Chic recently highly recommended the service she had on her bike at CycleLab. The juice bar is a great addition.
Lock 7 Cycle Cafe
Where? 129 Pritchards Road, E2 9AP
Perhaps London’s oldest “cycle cafe” Lock 7 provides everything you would expect from a cycle cafe. It is a great place to get your bike tuned up, find a second hand bike and rent a bike or a tandem.
FullCity Cycle Cafe
Where? 72 Leather Lane, E1
Petite cycle cafe and workshop down Leather Lane. Serves up £1 cups of Monmouth coffee!
