For many, cycling brings a sense of freedom and comes in different forms--road cycling, mountain biking, adventure biking, off-road sport and cyclocross. Whether you ride solo or with a group, cycling often has a social aspect that is often influenced by European or America tradition. Breakaway Cafe will be your stop for an espresso after an intense ride on the country roads of Chatham County or drinking a refreshing beer after hitting the Briar Chapel mountain biking trails. Whether you are starting, ending or in the middle of your ride, you can come to Breakaway to fuel up, meet up, celebrate and find essentials to keep your ride going. And, if for no other reason, we want to share our love of cycling with you!
