When Cycling Meets Coffee: Bicycle-Themed Cafes in Singapore 当自行车邂逅咖啡，新加坡自行车主题的咖啡馆
Gone are the days of boring, run-of-the-mill cafes. These days, cafe owners try to differentiate their business by throwing in a theme, hence the proliferation of cafes based on cartoons, movies, pets, and also hobby-based themes such as bikes. I have curated a list of bicycle-themed cafes in Singapore that you may or may not know. Bicycle themed cafes, like cycling itself, is booming, not just as a sport but also as a lifestyle.
Coffee and cycling have always gone hand in hand, perhaps because one fuels the other, and that goes both ways. When cycling meets coffee, both bring people together for great conversation while enjoying something they love. Both bring a connection whether between long time buddies, significant others, or someone you just met.
These bicycle themed cafes are based on different concepts. Some bicycle cafes are coffee shop / bike repair shop hybrids, while others provide a full-service restaurant with a bike-friendly atmosphere and cycling-inspired décor. Whatever the case, these bicycle cafes are hubs in their cycling communities and provide a friendly, welcoming space that encourages the cycling culture and the active lifestyle. Even if you’re not an avid cyclist, you’ll still enjoy them. Whether you’re stepping off on a weekday morning commuting to work, looping around the nearby park or cruising through life on a relaxed weekend afternoon, they are all bicycle friendly business where you can enjoy a warming coffee or a quenching brew, so do check out this list.
