After months of planning, preparation, training and complex negotiations between riders… Café Hero has made it to the start line. In case you didn’t already know, Café Hero is a guide to Yorkshire’s finest cycling cafes. Our aim is simple: to be the go-to website for cycling specific cafes across the whole of the Yorkshire region.
It has taken some time to bring our website to the masses because we are more than just a directory. We haven’t just listed every café in the region or performed a quick search using the internet; every single café on the site has been independently tried and tested by us. We have used our own leg power to get there (maybe a bit of drafting), our own money to pay for the food and our own taste buds to test the delicious food Yorkshire has to offer!
On the ‘About’ page you’ll find everything you need to know to be able to use the website, and on the ‘Cafes’ page there’s an interactive map with quick links to café profiles.
As the website goes live we are working hard in the background to add as many cafes as we can, as soon as we can, and we have around 70 great venues to add to the map over the coming weeks and months. We have only released detailed information on a relatively small number of cafes at the moment to give users a feel for what’s to come, plus we want to create a sense of excitement about which cafes have made the grade! Where’s the fun in giving everyone what they want straight away!
