Just as the name says, Barcycle is bar, cafe and cycle shop on Sydney harbor, Australia. Located in the old wharfs, the store cleverly divides its space with the bike store and workshop on one side and cafe on the other.
Being an outdoor climate, all of the seating for the cafe is outside on the decks beside the water. It’s also not your standard seating, with stools that are complete with the bike chain and pedals to rest your legs on.
Owned by an ex-bicycle professional, the old school charm of European cycling is alive and well with retro jerseys, bikes and imagery hanging from the walls and ceilings. On the bike store and workshop side, there is not a spare bit of space with bikes, parts and tools present in every available corner. Bike wheels with LED lights provide attractive extra light.
The bike store is buzzing with people dropping in to fix their bike, be fitted or even buy a new Colnago.
After the bike purchase and fix, the obligatory coffee or ‘aperitivo’ awaits.
