About Us

Flow Cafe & Bikes intends to be a local “communal hub” for customers looking for a completely unique experience unlike any other cafe or bike shop in the area. We strive to separate ourselves based on the relationships we create with customers, the inviting communal environment that we look to breed within our customer base, and the exciting novelty of our hybrid cafe bike shop.

We take great pride in offering Windsor & Essex County the best bike brands, services, and cafe menu items, but we believe our true ingredient for success is the unique atmosphere and experience Flow Café & Bike will offer to our customers.

It is our full intention to contribute to growing the local riding scene in Windsor & Essex County. We want to use our love and passion for cycling to take our local riding scene to new heights and create more local riders in the area than ever before.

Our Mission & Vision

Flow Cafe & Bikes looks to inspire the community! We envision our store as a local community hub that will assist in growing our local riding scene, while promoting healthy lifestyles through a dynamic fusion of coffee and cycling.

A powerhouse of expertise and innovation
