Milan is a city that never stops “riding”, which for a Milanese basically means “getting down to it”, working hard. The perfect place to ride is called Upcycle, which is a café, a co-working space, and a bike repair which reminds of Northern Europe (from the Swedish menu on Sundays to the industrial interiors).

This industrial warehouse divided in two areas (a part devoted to a fixed co-working and the other open to the public) is in the limelight when talking about driveability, an incredibly important theme in Milan, and is still a meeting point for bike enthusiasts. Anyway, even if you’re not a fan, but need a calm corner to study or work, Upcycle is the place for you. It’s not necessary to be a great cyclist to make your brain ride.
