Cyclists are spoilt for choice in the Wharfe valley and sometimes overlook this charming refurbished old village school. There’s bags of space inside and out, and one of the best selections of freshly baked scones, delicious cakes, and locally sourced meals anywhere in Yorkshire.
Hebden is a small village so the setting is quiet with a particularly nice view out the back of the cafe.
There’s not a lot in the way of cycling specific features like bike locks etc. but there’s usually a copy of Cyclist Magazine on the shelf if you’re on your own (or don’t like your friends).
We’d highly recommend this cafe for an ‘out and back’ type ride from Leeds or as a stop just before or after tackling the hill up to Greenhow.
