    What Friborgians love most, connects the Velosophie in Freiburg: their bicycle and a good coffee. The name stands for the love of the bicycle ("Velo") and the love of a woman ("Sophie").

    Senad Sarac is fascinated by craftsmanship and good quality. He has been collecting antique bicycle parts for years. Everywhere on his travels Senad discovered in sheds, cellars or at flea markets wonderful items or bicycles, which all have one thing in common: Crafted in solid handcraft and sometimes wonderfully decorated, they dawned for many years discarded and often in a deplorable state in a slumber down. It created a huge collection of historic individual pieces between 1895 and 1970. A unique journey through the history of the bike from the complete pinnacle of the founding period on Bianchi frames from the twenties, gear shifts, ringing, handlebars, delivery bicycles to police wheels, which is already some Gangsterjagd experienced. Parts with history, which they radiate and turn into favorite pieces. Sustainability in a fascinating way that makes every vintage bike fan a heart beat faster is the concept of Le Vélo.

    Not only the original tools from two centuries, all of which are still in use, become tangible and tangible in the showroom in Grosse Brunnenstraße in Hamburg, but also finished unique pieces and the intensive consultation. Personalization is a matter of the heart here. Every detail is discussed, planned and realized on the customer's request. The authentic Le Vélo bike is only available once, because you can not reproduce individuality. The combination of bike and driver is created by the loving accompaniment of the development process.

    In the café you get more than coffee, tea and homemade cakes. Quality and enjoyment come first. You can rent the unique coffee bike for your event. Whether with or without a professional barista.

    Le Vélo is the highest quality bike couture with the inspiring atmosphere of friends for friends.

    Café Hutmacher

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Not so long ago, Wuppertal was considered one of the most bike-unfriendly cities in Germany. Recently, however, the city in the Bergisch Land enjoys ever greater popularity among cyclists. The main reason for this is the Nordbahntrasse, a railway track recultivated as a cycle path that meanders "over the roofs" of the elongated city from Vohwinkel to Sprockhövel.

    At the height of the district Elberfeld is one of the heart of the route, the station Mirke. The listed building is the cultural center of Nordstadt and gives many colorful projects a home. In this old station building is the Café Hutmacher. Here you can pause inside and in good weather outside. In addition to coffee and cake, there are delicious snacks from the stone oven or from the grill from spring to autumn. If you would rather have a beer for the tarte flambée from the oven, you are well advised with the house beer "bearded brew". Sustainability is very important here. Whether coffee, shower or beer: Everything is taken to ensure that it is produced fairly and locally.

    The whole thing is rounded off by numerous events such as readings, concerts or design markets, which mainly feature the weekends of the station. If you do not have your own bike, the Mirke train station is also a good starting point for you. It is easily accessible by public transport and houses a free bike rental service. For a small pledge you can start cycling from there.

    SchraubBar Duisburg

    Road Cycling Highlight

    The SchraubBar is located in the middle of a row of pubs in Duisburg's own street. This can already be guessed: The alternatively founded bicycle workshop in the multicultural district Duisburg Hochfeld is not a normal bicycle shop and not a normal Radcafé. The SchraubBar serves not only as a workshop and shop for old restored wheels, but above all as a trendy place for all who love their two-wheeler. Bicycle couriers, road bike amateurs, BMXers and mountain bikers - all types of cyclists are welcome.

    Once a week, on Wednesday evening, can be screwed, what the stuff holds. In addition, there are regular events of all kinds in the bar. You can listen to concerts or get rid of old stuff at the flea market. If the SchraubBar does not chatter about wheels with a bottle of beer, then the neighborhood on two wheels is made unsafe around the main road. There are regular Alleycats, to which every cyclist is welcome.
