Handlebars – the people who are modernising bike repair. Experts in their craft, they make their services accessible to every cyclist through a seamless customer interface. Their mechanics are highly skilled and are an incredibly friendly bunch all passionate about enhancing the lives of cyclists. They believe every bicycle deserves care and attention so it runs smoothly and cyclists all over London can continue their love affair with cycling. 5 mins away from Hyde Park and Marble Arch, visit 29 Kendal Street for a Winter Safe Ride Service or a signature Sweet Ride Service and they’ll be sure to help you out.
As a gift to the local community, during December Handlebars are offering everyone who books in for a Winter Service a FREE coffee from our local baristas from Le Pain Quotidien. Just one more reason to dust off the wheels and take them for a spin.
Connaught Village has an abundance of bicycle parking spaces dotted around the area as well as two Santander bike stations. It is the perfect picturesque base for those traveling to or from the West End and is just a stone’s throw from Hyde Park’s scenic cycling routes. See below a map showing all the available bicycle parking in Connaught Village and the location of Handlebars Bike Repair shop.
What you can do once you arrive in Connaught Village
Once parked up, you can get your delicious morning coffee from local legend Markus Coffee where you can choose from 34 varieties of coffee beans from 13 different countries to make your ideal brew. The knowledgeable staff will even roast and blend it for you in store. Relax and recharge while enjoying the seductive aroma of some of the world’s best coffees.
For something a little more substantial after a long ride, the renowned Belgian restaurant and patisserie, Le Pain Quotidien offers a tempting array of freshly baked breads and pastries. When dining in, take a seat at one of its communal tables – a centrepiece of the restaurant – and choose from crisp salads, tartines, frittatas, organic wines and beers. Or grab something to go as you take a leisurely walk around the village enjoying the architecture and latest seasonal installations.
This winter Connaught Village is showcasing two free, outdoor neon artworks by world famous artists Rob & Nick which you can find at Porchester Place and Connaught Street. Read all about it in one of our recent articles, here.
