Coffee shops for cyclists

Coffee and a Bike Ride - Yes they go together!

Cycling is a popular form of exercise and the experience of a ride can be enhanced by stopping off at a local coffee shop for some refreshments. Yes, cycling and coffee go together perfectly, as coffee can add to daily hydration levels, making it the perfect tasty drink to have during a bike ride. Don’t just take our word for it! 

Here are some reasons why you might want to drink coffee:

  • Coffee contains caffeine and can help boost energy levels, helping cyclists power up hills!
  • Coffee can enhance athletic performance and is often used as an ergogenic aid by athletes looking to improve performance. So you could really outpace your mates!
  • Coffee could help you live for longer by lowering the risk of death from several conditions, allowing for many more bike rides!

Cycles and Coffee

And here are some fun facts about coffee to get your taste buds tingling:

  • A third of the world’s population drinks coffee
  • According to the International Coffee Organisation, Finland drinks the most coffee in the world, with the average person consuming four cups a day.
  • The world’s largest cup of coffee contained 26,939.22 litres of coffee, and was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records. Imagine how fast you could cycle after drinking that!
