A little background on The Freewheel

The Freewheel is the brainchild of Adrian Oliver, founder of Kent-based CyclingAge, the organisation that delivers Bikeability for children in schools around Kent and adult cycling training.

There are some great places for cyclists to stop around the county, however Adrian wanted to create a real oasis for them, a place they’d be welcome and where they can park their cycles with confidence, re-hydrate, recover and refresh.  The Freewheel is an ideal place to engage with other cycling enthusiasts, watch major cycling races on the large indoor screen, even get running repairs and services for their trusty cycles.

New developments are happening weekly so keep an eye on our events page to see all the fun things that are happening at the Freewheel.

What we offer

The Freewheel is also a brilliant venue to hire.  We have a variety of rooms and spaces available for one-off hire or as an on-going regular booking.

The Freewheel is the perfect location to explore the stunning Kent countryside and also some of the most beautiful beaches in England. Keep an eye on the website for the launch of our bike hire service and if you are planning on touring the area on your bikes we have maps available to download.

Our customers say

Just discovered The Freewheel whilst on a bike ride through the beautiful countryside - how awesome! definitely coming again and love that it is a bar, it feels family friendly and chilled.

Had a slight issue with one of our bikes so stopped to see if the workshop was open. Adrian was fantastic, not only fixed the problem but showed us how to fix it in future. Brilliant set up, food, drink and a bike workshop.
