Merging beer and bikes, the former Four Horseshoes boozer in Seasalter Road in Graveney has been refurbished and rebranded as The Freewheel public house.
Serving ales and wine like any traditional pub, this quirky new watering hole also doubles up as a bike maintenance shed.
The idea is the brainchild of bike-crazy Adrian Oliver who co-founded Kent-based CycleAge, an organisation delivering tailored cycling lessons to the public.
On Monday, a year after the pub was closed and boarded up, Adrian treated his new clientele to bands, circus bikes and a barbecue.
Adrian said: “When I went to view the property there were cyclists going past even then, so I saw the potential.
“The pub is ideally located two minutes from the national cycle route, which runs all the way through Kent, so there was no better opportunity for me here.
“On Monday, we had a barbecue serving the poshest sausages from a local farm just down the road and lots of local beer.
“We had loads of bikes on show and our seven-seat monster bike even made an appearance.
“We are really looking forward to welcoming in our new customers during the summer.”
