Bangkok's new hub for coffee and bikes to go

- +

It was sunny last Friday morning, perfect for first-time novices to go cycling on the streets of Bangkok's old quarters with like-minded people who meet at Cafe Velo Dome, a popular hangout for coffee lovers and bike freaks at Tha Phrachan campus of Thammasat University (TU). 

But don't expect the cafe to be a chic meeting point adorned with bike frames, saddles or chains hanging as props on the walls. No interior decoration related to bicycles is in sight, except for a steel bicycle model on the shelf.

Also, don't expect it to be a typical place where patrons come for coffee. Many are here to enjoy talking about bicycles. A couple of novice cyclists were already there, waiting for the tour as I arrived.
