Polocini's Cycle Coffee Shop

"A cyclists' cafe is more than just a coffee shop, it's a workshop and a riders' hub – and a shared love of cake." - Matt Seaton

How do you combine cake, coffee and cycling? By opening a coffee shop of course.

Our friends Al and Clare have just done that, bringing together the three C's (cake, coffee and cycling) in the fantastic Polocini coffee shop in Romiley, Cheshire. 

Here you can rack you bike safely, enjoy a freshly ground coffee with a slice or two of homemade cake, catch up with fellow cyclists or maybe watch some cycling action on the screen.

On the wall there is a great display of cycling memorabilia that Al has collected from various races from all over Europe, from vintage cycling jerseys to the deviation arrows that the professional rides follow on race day.

As well as opening the coffee shop, Al successfully runs Polocini which encompasses cycling tours, cyclo-sportives and events which cater for all riders of all abilities. They have built up a reputation for providing the best food at their events, now they can boast at having the best coffee! Follow them on twitter too for all the latest news.
