Our owner, Jan Heylen, is a Belgian native who made his career as a professional race car driver. After moving to Florida and spending several years in the area, the opportunity arose to buy a local bike shop (formerly Dunedin Cyclery). After a few conversations with the owner, he made Jan a deal and so, Kafe Racer was born. Kafe Racer's inspiration comes from Jan's Belgian roots and lifelong love for bikes. The modern black interior features a collection of beautiful racing bikes and a deconstructed Porsche to show off Jan's career as a professional race car driver as well as his passion for cycling. Over the last few years, the Kafe Racer team has worked diligently to bring a top tier cycling store to the Tampa Bay area. Jan hopes that Kafe Racer's design provides customers with a comfortable space to wait on bike rentals + repairs, while the Kafe was created to give the Dunedin community a spot to enjoy local roasted coffee, beer + wine, homemade pastries, live music and more.
