Cyclists were able to refuel en route at Bicicletta con Velo, with others ogling the apparel on offer and even non-helmet bearing pedestrians soaking up the atmosphere.

“It’s been a really nice take up by the town and we’ve been enjoying working here,” manager Matt Thomas-Keeping told the Reporter.

“It’s a really inclusive space, both for cyclists and those who aren’t with their bikes.”

Owner Christopher Middleton, who came up with the idea for the café, added: “I think it’s attracting more people to the town, which is great for Saffron Walden.”
