Pedal Power, is Wales’ top cycling café according to Cycling UK’s annual Cyclist Café of the Year awards. Based just off the Taff Trail close to Dogo Street, the café stood out among its competition not just for its healthy, home-cooked food and relaxed atmosphere, but also for the valuable role it plays in making
inclusive as possible. While offering a range of conventional two wheeled bicycles, Pedal Power also makes available a range of specially adapted bikes, trikes and tandems suitable for riders of all ages and abilities. Out of the many favourite refreshment stops chosen by Wales’ cyclists, Pedal Power, stood out as the clear winner for Cycling UK’s judges, which included Celebrity Masterchef winner, Angellica Bell.
Angellica Bell said: “Pedal Power is more than just a café, it’s linked to a charity which enables people of all ages and abilities to experience the benefits of cycling. By visiting you’re supporting the fantastic work they do.” Pedal Power’s on-site workshop means there’s always a pump or
tube to hand in case your bike needs a bit of TLC and, all profits go towards supporting the award-winning cycling charity which empowers those least likely to cycle to get on a bike. Te café is wheelchair friendly and encourages customers and carers to use the space as a meeting place which has led to the café also winning the Silver Carer Friendly Award from the Carers’ Trust. Singalongs, exhibitions of local artists and a peaceful setting in the park all add to the café’s charms beyond their excellent coffee and cake.
