Rural Britain is motorbikers’ heaven.
Vertu Motorcycles analysed locations of over 1,200 biker cafes to find that Masham, a small town in Harrogate, is the biker capital of the UK.
In Wales it’s Barmouth which hosts the most biker-cafes with 21 for 2,522 people and it sits in third place behind Bakewell.
The research using UKbikercafes.co.uk data was analysed as a proportion of regional population; areas with a greater ratio of biker cafes to number of people were therefore ‘more biker-friendly’ than those with a lower ratio.
In particular, the South West and the South East were found to have the most biker cafés in the UK, with 177 and 171 biker cafés, respectively. In total, that’s almost 350 biker cafés in the country’s most southern regions alone.
