Hardie Park and its cafe welcome cyclists to enjoy the park and use the cafe facilities. The cafe is open 7 days a week from 9am to 4pm and can provide a well earned break to those travelling on two wheels. A range of Italian coffees, Rossi’s ice-creams, cakes and cooked breakfast awaits. We can offer you toilets on site and a cosy cafe setting for refreshments or choose a view of the park if the weather is good on the decking. Blankets are available if you need some warmth outside.
Make it a place to rest your legs, fill your water bottles and pump your tyres!
Earlier in the year we successfully applied for a grant from South Essex Active Travel to set up a bike recycling and cycling engagement project at Hardie Park. The funding allows us to recycle donated bikes and make affordable bikes for the local community. We have hired an apprentice, a local young person who has competed his industry-standard Cytech Level 2 Bike Maintenance qualification. We can offer free training to local people who want to learn how to repair and maintain their own bikes, basically anything and everything to get local people cycling! (look out for any scheduled workshops on our Facebook page @hardiecyclehub)
