Velolife, Maidenhead

2019’s ‘Cycling Cafe of the Year’ gained itself a lot of publicity and support last year after having legal issues with the local council. The cafe has become a favourite for its tasty toasties and cakes as well as a welcoming atmosphere. A definite must visit for any cyclist, even if it is just to say you have been to the famous cafe.

Gilks’ Garage Cafe in Kineton, Warwickshire

This lovely family run cafe has an excellent selection of locally sourced food from freshly made cakes to delicious Full English breakfasts. The staff are always very friendly, helpful and always welcome cyclists. The cafe is one of the few places that can boast that it has more parking for bikes than cars. It can be found at the base of the famous Edgehill battle (both historically and for cyclists) the average gradient is 10.8% with a max of 16% and it features in the women’s and men’s elite cycle race through Warwickshire. Well worth a visit should you find yourself in the area.
