Bistro Biking

Cyclists, we’ve found your city niche.

As cycling becomes increasingly popular in London – from Boris Biking to Ride London, a wonderful new cyclist cafe culture is evolving.

There are now several bike bistros where you can relax with fellow bikers, have a coffee, watch some sport – and even have your bicycle seen to in the process!
