Our summer drinks menu is back.
We have Nitro Coldbrew on offer again this summer but this time it's served in cans. New North have created this coldbrew that steeps for 18 hours using a Latin-American blend coffee and purified water that is then nitrogenated to make a smooth, creaming and refreshing drink. If you haven't yet tried it but fancy a cold caffeine hit, give it a try next time you're in.
Alternatively you might like to try our in house Iced Lattes or Iced Teas developed by Head Barista Arron, or go all out and indulge in an Espresso Milkshake or Affogato!
We welcome Arron Voice to our team as our Head Barista. Arron has a real passion for coffee and bikes so is a perfect addition to our team. He's already spent some time with our coffee roasters Coffee Officina learning about their processes and their various coffees and will be leading on bringing us new guest coffees for our customers to try, together with providing ongoing training to staff in the art of making the perfect cup of coffee!
We are also pleased to confirm that we will now be selling sourdough bread from local microbakery Mini Miss Bread. As well as using the sourdough for our dishes in the kitchen the locally made, organic sourdough will be available for customers to take home with them on Tuesdays and Fridays. For further information about Mini Miss Bread head to our cafe pages.
We have had to say farewell to David who is leaving us to go and work at Look Mum No Hands in London. He will be missed by both staff and customers. We wish him all the very best for the future

22 November 2017 - Christmas approaches
Christmas is fast approaching and we've got so much going on at the cafe. This week we've got the infamous Black Friday. We are discounting a number of our products across our range, both in store and online. These discounts will also be applied to our bikes and we are discounting these to the lowest price they will ever be available for. So if you've been eyeing up one of our bikes in store now is the time to grab it. When they're gone, they're gone.
Our Black Friday deals will be continuing for 5 days.
Then our focus switches to our Bici'Xmas event on Friday 1st December. After the success of last year's Bici'Xmas in aid of local charity The Laughter Specialists we have decided to do it all again! The highlight of this event is our Christmas Raffle. We are selling raffle tickets in store with a number of brilliant prizes up for grabs (keep an eye on our social media on what is being donated). And new for this year will be our champagne giveaway. We'll be selling tickets on the night to win a bottle of champagne AT LEAST every hour!! We'll have Steak & Honour here serving up their lip smackingly good burgers from their wagon outside and inside we will treat you to festive cocktails, mulled wine and our usual selection of wines, craft ales from Bishop's Nick and prosecco. All accompanied by some festive tunes and good cheer! Join us for what is usually a very popular and festive evening!
And then once that mayhem has passed we are offering a grown up evening of coffee tasting with the guys from Coffee Officina. This workshop, being held on Thursday 7th December, will be a chance to learn about sourcing, roasting and brewing coffee as well as tasting opportnuities and the chance to buy coffee beans direct from the roaster. Tickets are just £5 per person but are limited to a maximum of 20 places so book your tickets now to avoid disappointment!

We are pleased to announce that from Monday 4th September we will be open from 7.30am Monday - Saturday. Our Sunday opening time will remain at 9am (we all need a lie in every now and then). So if you're out on an early morning ride or you've got an early start in the office, do pop by for your early morning caffeine fix!
AND we'll be offering all takeaway coffee at the bargain price of £1.50 between 7.30am and 9am. Win, win!
7 august 2017 - we have a new guest coffee
We are delighted to introduce Coffee Officina as our new guest coffee at Bicicletta. Rory and Marcella founded the roastery in 2013 and it has gone from strength to strength ever since. In keeping with our aim to support and promote local roasteries Coffee Officina are based in a small village just outside Bishops Stortford where they hand roast small batches of seasonal and ethically sourced coffee.
So next time you're in why not give a cup of our guest coffee a try. We'd love to know what you think!

19 July 2017 – Meet Owen, our new ride leader!
Owen recently joined the Bicicletta team and in addition to bringing another friendly face to our customers in the cafe we are delighted that Owen will now be leading the weekly shop rides.
Owen got into cycling as a youngster when introduced to the Tour de France by his grandparents. He got his first road bike at the age of 16 and by the time he turned 17 he was competing in national junior events, including the Tour of the Isle of Man, on behalf of the Cambridge Cycling Club beating riders that’d later go on to compete in the Tour de France.
He was then picked up by the national elite team and competed for them for the next 5 years.
Unfortunately due to health issues he has recently had to step back from racing but determined to give something back to the sport he now runs his own series of weekly summer races in London.
We are very happy to have Owen joining the team and he is looking forward to encouraging as many of you as possible to take to your bikes and enjoy a relaxed pace ride at the weekends.

If you have any questions about the rides feel free to grab Owen when you’re next in Bicicletta and say hello!
