“Every cyclist loves two things: coffee and beer. Cyclists love their Italian espresso drinks pre-ride followed by cold craft beer post-ride.” – Dave Edwards, Trek Travel Guide
Well cycling enthusiasts, we’re touching on the number one thing you all love and where to get it today on the blog: Coffee. Here’s our list of the best bike-friendly cafes around the U.S.
Tandem Creperie and Coffeehouse // Travelers Rest, SC
Tandem is a hip creperie and coffehouse right on Main St. in Travelers Rest just outside of Greenville, SC. Ride your bike straight in from Greenville for a hearty breakfast or grab a cup of Counter Culture Coffee before you hit the Swamp Rabbit Trail just across the road.
Bouldin Creek Cafe // Austin, TX
If you enjoy a laid-back patio scene, with vegetarian eats and locally sourced coffee grinds, then check-out Bouldin Creek Cafe in Austin. With plenty of rack space in the front and a free bike repair shed in the back, Bouldin Creek is where every cyclist should be when in the Live Music Capital of the world.
Bikes, beer and coffee. The Denver Bicycle Cafe in ( you guessed it ) Denver, CO has all of that and more. They are an authorized Orbea dealer, they sell top brand parts and offer a full range of bike services. In addition to all that, their coffeehouse provides locally roasted, in season beans by way of French Press or as espresso on their La Marzocco machine. Need we say more?
Inspired by his upbringing in Milan during the 70s and exposure to American culture when his father was working in Chicago, owner Manuel Mainardi opened Maglia Rosa in Brooklyn. This boutique custom bike shop and cafe is the perfect pre or post ride hangout. Enjoy simplistic sips and eats that capture the essence of Italy’s countryside.
Convoy Coffee // Seattle, WA
If Convoy Coffee in Seattle doesn’t scream appreciation of bikes and coffee then we don’t know what does! In 2014, owners Alex Johnstone and David Rothstein built a pair of bicycle coffee carts which they loaded with grinds from independent coffee roasters in Washington and hit the streets of Seattle to bring coffee to everyone, anywhere. Grab your bike and plan to meet-up with them at one of three weekly locations for a some of Washington’s best coffees.
Once an abandoned building along The Swamp Rabbit Trail, a well-known bike trail in Greenville, SC, is now a food community and gathering space. Riders can hop on and off the trail here for a cup of craft coffee or espresso, along with a slice of their famous stecca bread.
Pedalers Fork // Calabasas, CA
Pedalers Fork offers nothing but the best in high quality coffees and teas by embodying the third wave coffee movement. Also, by sponsoring local riders, events and national races, Pedalers Fork strives to grow cycling culture. A percentage of every purchase made is donated to the pursuit of growing cycling culture and that is a cause we can get 100% behind!
Bikes, Beans and Bordeaux Neighborhood Cafe // Orlando, FL
B3Cafe in Orlando was made from a blend of cycling enthusiasm, community, healthy living and environment. Enjoy a cup or two of Jittery Joe’s coffee, like the Morning Ride espresso, before heading out on your daily ride.
