Alternative Bike Cafes in London

by James Marr 02 Dec 2019

You’re probably all familiar with the likes of Rapha cafes and Look Mum No Hands, but here’s a list of our 5 favourite London cycle cafés.

Be sure to pop in for repair work, parts, or a mid cycle coffee and snack once normality resumes and we’re able to explore on two wheels again!

Machine London Bridge

Machine – a family run workshop and café space on Tower Bridge Road (SE1) offering Monmouth coffee, sandwiches and a vegan stew of the day in a relaxed setting, and also sells their own merchandise ranging from hand printed t-shirts, to socks and mugs. find out more at

Cyclelab & Juicebar
Cyclelab & Juicebar Pitfield Street N1

Cyclelab & Juicebar – not only offers bike repairs and juices on Pitfield Street (N1) as the name suggests, but also Square Mile coffee, cakes and granola pots, and even a yoga class twice each month designed specifically for cyclists to target hamstrings, hips, IT bans, back and shoulders, and core strength.

Soho Bikes
Soho Bikes

Soho Bikes – a central spot happy to fix any emergency with a good stock of everything you could need and a side-line in bespoke coffee blends, all in an open plan workshop on Berwick Street (W1F). Less costly than alternatives in the area, and you can even get a branded t-shirt, hoodie or beanie to go. find out more at
