It’s a well-known fact that Cambridge is a cycling and cultural capital of the UK. Since opening in 2015, Espresso Library has built a strong community of cycling lovers who unite for weekly rides come rain or shine. Their range of design-led cycling jerseys are the ideal purchase for avid riders, available in store all year round as well as online. Exploring further? Head over to their main restaurant on East Road for a full flavour of their unique blend of cycling and culture. A nod to Espresso Library’s carefully curated art exhibition can also be found on the walls (and ceiling!) of EL2.
