When Penelope is on her bike, nothing else matters, there could be a downpour and a free ride at hand and she probably still wouldn't budge. The freedom that her bike offers is unparalleled and when paired with beautiful coffee you can stick a fork in her, she's done! After graduating from Culinary School Penelope fell in love with coffee while abroad in Australia and it's a total thrill for her to be able to continue that journey at Cyclismo. When not on coffee bar Penelope is adventuring on her bike or in Theatre class.

Cycling is one of Uriel's passions, it gives him the freedom to control nothing but what's in front of him. When it comes to coffee he enjoys working with it because there are so many different techniques at hand in which to brew and prepare, and most importantly coffee is also one of the many ways we all mutually connect on a global scale and he considers that to be true poetry. When not on the coffee bar you can find Uriel at the cafe and hard at work on a new bike build.
