Cyclist Café of the Year 2020

Nominate your number 1 café

Coffee and cake are two ingredients to a good day in the saddle that we've been missing lately. As lockdown eases and cafés reopen their doors, we are championing the best in the business with our annual Cyclist Café of the Year awards. Nominate your favourite cycle-friendly venue and tell us what makes it so special. Is it the brilliant bike bakes or the warm welcome? Maybe it's the offer of takeaway tea during a socially distanced trip?

There will be a winner for each country:

  • England
  • Scotland
  • Wales
  • Northern Ireland

Voting opens on 24 July 2020 and runs until 30 October 2020.

A few little details

  • Cafés can't vote for themselves.
  • Only one entry per person.
  • To enter, tell us why you think your chosen café is most deserving in no more than 100 words.
  • The winner will be selected by an independent panel of expert judges from around the UK, headed up by Cycling UK.
  • Judging will take place at the start of November and announced online. Prizes will then be sent out to the winners.
