An innovative new venture, EBIKE CAFE @ Deheers opened its doors on Saturday 7th November in the prestigious Deheers Building along Weymouth’s Old Harbourside.
Owners Peter Claxton and Josephine Parker along with their manager Danni Moors are championing an active lifestyle, healthier eating and positive mental wellbeing in a COVIDsafe environment through their new look enterprise.
It combines their current shop, Dorset CycleLife1, a well established and successful all electric bike shop, with a cafe offering a great selection of nutritious, healthy foods on the menu.
Co owner Josephine Parker explains: “The EBIKE CAFE @ Deheers is our new brand venture for all your ebike needs. Here you can enjoy wholesome takeaway food and drinks on the iconic Weymouth Harbourside. Once lockdown is over you can sit in our cafe area to take lunch or a quick bite. There is parking for those arriving by cycle or the opportunity to hire a bike to explore the surrounding area. You can even recharge your bike in the ebike charging points.
In addition, customers will find expert technicians in the dedicated service and workshop zone and a comprehensive sales area”.
And what better place to start this new venture than along the historic Weymouth Old Harbourside in the prestigious and sensitively renovated historic Deheers building www.deheers.com.
Mickey Jones and his team at D J Property have recently completed the £2.5 million renovation of the Victorian Deheers building bringing a collection of luxury warehouse style apartments above the new retail area.
Micky Jones says: “we are delighted the EBIKE CAFE @ Deheers have taken the lease from us. There were many applications for this lease but Peter and Josephine’s vision for an environmentally friendly, family-run business, coupled with expert knowledge and the provision of a healthy eating cafe stood out. It will bring local employment and add an exciting new chapter to the rich heritage of entrepreneurs this historic building has engaged with since its beginnings in the 19th century”
Peter says: “we feel privileged to bring our business to Weymouth within the prestigious setting of the Deheers building. Our venture occupies over 140 square metres of space on the ground floor. A generous space to showcase our business and to welcome our customers, old and new. It is a centrally located, picturesque setting, easily accessed by cycle networks – it couldn’t be better!”.
