Run by cyclists for cyclists, Café Velo is a European-inspired retro bike café filled with cycling memorabilia and friends - old and new.
We have partnered with Padré Hand-Roasted Coffee to bring you the finest beans we could find. Try seasonal blend or single origins with a home-baked raspberry & white chocolate muffin, apple streusel cake or one of our famous giant choc chip cookies.
Fuel your ride with Cyclone’s muesli, served with a berry compote and Greek yoghurt or a mouth-watering sour dough fruit toast from Milawa.
There’s nothing quite like a post-ride pig out – some favourite dishes are Spartacus - our famously huge falafel wrap with lots of yummy sauces, the protein-packed Jonny Hoogerland (torn smoked salmon in a three-egg free-range scramble on sour dough) or a delicious Hungry Runner – smashed avocado with Meridith Goats’ cheese, truss tomato and poached eggs with Mt Buffalo Olive Oil and fresh basil.
Replenish with a fresh juice – organic beetroot, carrot and ginger will aid recovery and make you go faster or try a banana or berry smoothie with added protein.
Whether you are with the peloton or riding solo, you’ll find a warm welcome at Bright Velo. Your hosts, former Australian Road Champion Wayne Hildred and partner Susan Charlton can connect you with other cyclists and show you local rides. Ask about Wayne’s on-the-bike training tips.
So why not drop in for a coffee, home-baked Cadbury choc chip cookie, or the cycling stories and make Bright Velo your base camp for the Victorian Alpine Climbs.
