Spit & Sawdust  |  Creative Space / Skatepark

I could (and sometimes do) go on about this place a bit too much. It is an absolute melting pot of good stuff.  They’re bike friendly, cyclist owned and have plenty of events to keep your creative side quenched. The menu is simple and absolutely fantastic.  Think local, DIY and uber friendly.   Read our full review HERE.

Little Man coffee co Cardiff Cyclist Bike Friendly

The Little Man Coffee Co. Bridge St  |  Coffee / Creative Space

The Little Man Coffee Co. is everything we love and so much more.  Fantastic welsh coffees brewed extremely well, lots of nice people and plenty to get involved with.  (They also do a fantastic job of hosting our cycling themed events.) The railings outside the door are a perfect lock-up spot and you’ll probably find yourself another cyclist to chat to in there.
