Rachael and Ross welcome you to the new independent Cycle Coffee shop at 26 Keymer Road, Hassocks, West Sussex.
Rachael has a passion for coffee. At the age of 24 she ran her first country pub which soon led to opening a coffee shop and music venue within 18 months. Gathering her experience from a number of industry professionals, Rachael takes a lot of inspiration from the Italian cafe culture and has been a regular visitor of Lake Como where she has experienced everything Italian from the friendly service to the passion behind producing great food and drink.
Not only does Rachael deliver a quality product but she also creates a welcoming, homely environment here at Proper Cycling and Coffee. Keep an eye out for any events in the cafe too as I'm sure she has plenty of ideas up her sleeve!
Ross has a music industry background and recently, his passion for cycling led him to start Proper Cycling and Coffee with long term friend Rachael on board. Ross is highly experienced in long distance cycling and is a qualified Personal Trainer (although not a lot of people know that.....!).
He is also the founder of a charity that has a 'no admin' costs approach to helping local and international causes. The charity has so far seen Ross cycle from London to Gibraltar raising in excess of £15,000 for charity.
Ross spends as much time as he can cycling in the hills of Portugal and is an experienced cycle guide in the Algarve area. Which considering his challenged sense of direction is quite a feat...!
Rachael and Ross look forward to seeing you all soon for a coffee and a chat.
