Here at Blubel, community is at the very heart of everything we do: not only in cycling, but also what’s on our doorstep! We feel lucky that we can jump on our bikes and head off to a beautiful park for an impromptu picnic, cycle to the nearby speciality coffee house for the most amazing americano or a cheeky half at our much-loved local. So to celebrate all things local we have launched our #LocalCyclist campaign, where we will be showcasing our choice independent cafes, shops and restaurants alongside great green spaces. We also want to discover your favourite places to cycle to, so please let us know your top picks on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. Remember to use #LocalCyclist!
