La Bonne Echappée is a friendly family bike shop and café in the centre of Gaillac, a beautiful old market town and heart of the local wine region. In the Tarn department, only 55km from Toulouse and 25km from the historic city of Albi, Gaillac is surrounded by beautiful vineyards, set across rolling hills. The town is an ideal starting point from which to explore the area by bike. The shop offers bike rentals, sales, repairs and servicing. We also stock a variety of parts and accessories, as well as a small range of cycling apparel.
The café is a meeting place for cyclists and non-cyclists alike, and provides a range of hot and cold beverages, smoothies, homemade cakes and freshly prepared salads and hot food. We are passionate about food: growing, cooking, eating and sharing. Our menu changes with the seasons. We prioritise sourcing local and organic raw ingredients, not only as this better serves our environment, but because we understand the importance of supporting our local producers. We host a weekly brunch (Saturdays, 9:30am-2pm - advance bookings preferred) and cooking demonstrations that cover a range of dishes and cooking techniques.
