Well I thought it may not be too cheeky to post a thread on here about my new venture; Camber.cc, a new cycling cafe in Bristol. After taking a year off when I left London's famous London bike trade I'm back at the retail in a slightly different way; selling coffee to cyclists.
I share space in a 2100sqft warehouse unit in BS5 (St George, just 100m off the Bath/Bristol bike path) with 2 other businesses in a space we're calling "Business As Usual". Forever Pedalling, offering workshop services and a carefully curated selection of cycling accessories and own brand clothing, and the forum's own @hoops who runs the best paint shop in the west: https://www.colourburnstudio.com/
I plan to expand to offer bike fitting in the evenings, and we will be screening all racing live (Cross, MTB and road). We're also developing our mezzanine into a co-working space in the new year. The space will be available for event/class/screening rental also so please do drop me a message if you're looking for something!
Looks an ideal place to start an Audax from ;)
Looks good - shall drop in soon - hope it goes really well.
I popped in today to say hello. Bit hidden away from the crowd (some might say a good thing) but close to cycle path so easy to stop by on a ride. Coffee was so good I ended up having two cups! Lots of nice things to look at, got a Forever Pedaling sweatshirt on order as I love the design. Worth a trip!
Lovely to meet you!
Agreed we're not on the busiest street, but the travel connections make up for it I think.
I don’t think it’s cheeky at all to post, it’s very relevant to many forumites’ interests.
Good luck with it, will try to drop in on my rare visits out west.
I'm Jon MacK's dad, he was telling me about you guys the other day, best of luck, I will pop in sometime soon... as long as you have cake. You do have cake... don't you?
I can confirm there is cake, including that of the vegan variety, and it is very good.
I was there for the start of the overnight audax a couple of weekends back....amazing space and atmosphere. I had no idea you were involved @jammy - that's awesome. I live in the neighbourhood so will be popping in with a frequency.
Ahhh, there is cake, that's great news.... ride, sleep, eat cake, repeat.
There is cake. Working on some festive treats for the weekend too - we'll see...
I heard they even have that canned belgian chocolate business that can grant all of your (chocolate based) dreams.
Not true. It's Dutch
I’m gonna come in after Christmas. Looking forward to it!
Can also confirm the coffee and cake is top notch. What an amazing space. Best of luck to all involved, will hopefully be back soon!
Tell me more about the co-working space. I might be after some desk space at some point in the future - is that what you mean?
St George would be ridiculously convenient for a Fishpondian.
I've made an agreement with Rapha which will allow me to provide RCC members free coffee at Camber...
Just incase any of you are members!
Now if only if that was for LFGSS members
Little bump for this as we're showing the National Cyclocross Championships live on Sunday, if anyone is looking for a place to watch!
Organising a coffee and hills loop in February if anyone in Bristol or Bath are keen for a ride!
Completely missed this thread, looks like a nice little coffee shop. Will pop in next time I'm near Lawrence Hill.
@jammy - what a great setup you have there, great coffee and cake and lovely to meet you.
For anyone doing Bespoked Camber cafe/business as usual is well worth a visit.
Will be back on my next Bath/Bristol weekend stint, maybe @hoops will be there to discus #sickfadez for my Capo...
