Five tips for making your living room a tea stop.
Good news — you don't need to find somewhere to sit to keep an eye on your bike.



1. To give your 'home stop' an authentic feel, wear your Lycra at the table. But maybe not a sweaty bike helmet?

2. Maybe switching your sweaty helmet for a back pocket cycling cap is your thing, while you sit back and wait for your coffee or tea.

3. How about cycling tableware? Or add a little jug of milk for your tea.

4. Eat your cake with a fork, the way it is served in the cafe. 

5. Set up a video call with mates, and cafe stop all at the same time.
