Bradleys Sports Bar has won praise from local cyclists – fitting for a venue named after a cycling legend!

Lancashire Cycle Link president Steve Kilner, wife Debbie and committee member Gareth Shaw made a pit stop at the new bar, named after Olympic gold medallist Sir Bradley Wiggins, and were impressed with the state-of-the-art facility.

Warton-based Steve, who also works as a groundsman for AFC Fylde, arrived on the famous Raleigh Chopper that completed the Tour de France last year and believes that Bradleys is the perfect stop for cyclists in the area.

Steve said: “I am president of the Facebook based cycling magazine Lancashire Cycle Link that boasts over 3,000 members from all over Lancashire and beyond.

“We all love a good cafe stop that makes cyclists feel welcome and Mill Farm certainly did that.

“Some of the bikes on our rides are worth thousands of pounds and it is vital that they are visible to the owners at all times and Bradleys allows us to do that.

“We were lucky enough to have a tour around Mill Farm a few weeks ago and were invited back recently to see the finished bar. It’s very impressive and we would certainly encourage cyclists to make a point of stopping there in the future.”

A club spokesperson said: “As a sports bar we are keen to cater for all types of different sports fans and none more so than cyclists. Steve and the Lancashire Cycle Link have supported us from the off and will work with us to make the bar and café as cyclist-friendly as possible.”
