The UK’s cyclist-friendly cafes on a map

An easy map for locating your nearest cycling-friendly cafe or coffee house

Earlier this week we brought you a list favourite cycling cafes, as voted for by road.cc readers on our Facebook page. We had many more submissions than the ten we listed, and it got us thinking: a map of all the cyclist-friendly cafes would be a really useful thing.

Turns out someone had the same idea, and this Cafe Network on Google Maps was brought to our attention.

It’s a very handy resource. It lists hundreds of cyclist-friendly cafes all over the UK, with an alphabetical list on the left-hand side, and a map on the right. Simply zoom into your part of the country and see if you can find a local cafe.

Click on the coffee cup icon and you the name of the cafe plus the address and telephone number are listed. A website address would be a useful addition, but we're nitpicking really.  Check it out here.

David has worked on the road.cc tech team since July 2012. Previously he was editor of Bikemagic.com and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.
