Shots from the pit-stop: the top three cyclist cafés in Herefordshire

The road race cycling season is gearing up which means long, rainy training rides punctuated by the promise of a warm, caffeinated drink somewhere on the route.

Coffee culture and road cycling are old friends – perhaps due the deep roots both have on the continent, where the coffee is strong and short, or perhaps because having a ‘cheeky half’ at altitude before riding on 60mph roads is not the best of ideas.

Either way, the tradition is in full force in Herefordshire.

We caught up with two club cyclists who have covered the length and breadth of the county to talk about their top coffee stop spots. These are Matt Morris and Kyle Dovey’s top picks for a roadside pick-me-up... 

  • Diego’s Café, Bridge Street, Hereford.

  •    The River Café, Glasbury Bridge, Glasbury

 

  • Granary Café/Old Electric Shop, Broad Street, Hay-on-Wye.
