My husband and I opened Plan2ride bicycle cafe in 2016, our venue provides a high quality pit-stop for passing cyclists as well as runners and walkers. It's also a hub for the local community that blends excellence in bicycle servicing, repairs and hire, and a high quality, locally sourced café. I am the co-business owner, biker and baker. My role is undoubtedly quality control for our café provision and generally the one checking everyone has done what they were supposed to. My background is in organising major sporting events. My husband Raoul and Chad are our bike specialists and guides, qualified in British Cycling Ride Leadership Level 2 which trains guides to lead rides in more remote environments and over longer and more challenging terrain. In addition, our guides are fully trained in Cytech Mechanics Level 2.
Coffee and cake will be served on arrival at our Bicycle Cafe. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements.
