    Google Earth Community: Motorcycle hotspots and hangouts

    Yeah, its on Cowbridge Common in Wales.

    Also known as the Downs Cafe, just off the A48 between Cardiff and Bridgend at Aberthin. Beloved of Hardly Movingsons, classics and unfeasibly old people on push bikes.

    Its that one:

    The Old Fox in Brizzle isnt really the place for your weekend-warrior-power-ranger type of biker

    They do have great live bands on Saturdays though.... Its like they're playing in my front room!

    I look forward to perusing that list in a little more detail.
    What is that one just up the road from you called?

    Only been to one of those in recent years and that was serendipitous (Abergavenny).

    I guess I'm not a proper biker, my destinations are only occasionally bike related.

    Most of them aren't exactly "bike related".
    They are just good(?) cafes near good roads. Places where most bikers like to ride. Proper or not.

    Hmm, Aber is one of the very few I still enjoy stopping at.

    Avebury is cancelled for the forseeable future by all accounts. Well, the Weds BBQ and cordoned-off bike parking is, they won't turn away anyone that happens to turn up and be on a bike Personally, the bike night was dull, a bit like most organised stuff (or I'm becoming a miserable old cow) but lovely place to ride to any day of the week.
