Velokafi

If you happen to be in Zurich for the start of the cycling season, check out Velokafi.

Velokafi is a sort of drive-in café for cyclists, consisting of two wooden docking stations,  with table tops, which allow you to park your bike and use it as a seat on the outdoor terrace of the Rathaus Café

Anyone who checks in on Facebook gets a free cup of coffee.

Velokafi is part of Zurich council’s stadtverkehr 2025 initiative to improve the city’s infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists, while cutting traffic levels.

coffee.paper.bike – sounds like a good afternoon.
