The cycling cafe at Lagg built up quite a reputation as a pit stop for round the island events, club visits and local riders when it opened last year.

Now after a winter hibernation and some upgrade work Velo Cafe reopened last weekend and have already had a host of visitors; including the local Velo Club IOA, the Arran Belles, tandem riders Jan and Paul Emsley from Whiting Bay and early season riders from Edinburgh.

Velo Café is open six days a week 9.30am to 3pm for home baking ,vegan soup, good coffee and never ending banter. They are closed on Fridays. Follow the cafe community on Facebook and Instagram @velocafelagg
