Dallas Bicycle Cafe coming soon!

Submitted by on January 12, 2012 – 10:00 am9 Comments

I got this tip reading the Lakewood/East Dallas Advocate.  As many of you know Dallas Bike Works (Northwest Highway and Lawther – map) has an adjacent spot that begged to be utilized as some sort of eatery. Well it’s finally happening, Dallas Bicycle Cafe will be “opening soon” and from what I can tell it’s going to be a winner.

They’re going to offer storage lockers, changing rooms, an espresso bar, tea, beer, wine,  and best of all, a healthy menu (not bar crap).  The hours will be 6am to 10pm throughout the week and they’ll stay open until midnight on Friday and Saturdays.

In my book White Rock Lake is the enchanted forest for cycling in Dallas and I’m often a bit disappointed by the limited food opportunities close to the trail.  I’m generally not one to eat a greasy burger or fried chicken parts when I’m riding for any length of time or distance, so this shop excites me. I believe something like this is the kind of business that cyclists will line up to support. I know I will.

Judging by the photos it appears it’s going to be a very cozy and comfortable setting. Also worth noting, the real estate it’s situated on has a very large parking lot, which lends itself well as a place to gather for group rides.  Additionally, I’m not sure what the zoning allows  but each time I’ve visited Dallas Bike Works I’ve always been reminded of the live music events I’ve attended at Mellow Johnny’s and Bicycle Sport Shop in Austin.  This location would be perfect for bands and related outdoor events (beer garden).

Bravo team Dallas Bicycle Cafe, we’ll see you in person soon.

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
